To Our 

unit ]H?xmnz& 
of the World War 

and to those 

Whose deeds of conspicuous 
gallantry were so signally en- 
acted for the freedom of the 
World and the liberation of 
Humanity, this volume is affect- 
ionately dedicated. 


Important Announcement 

In the production of this authoritative work, with the 
valuable assistance of our most progressive citizens, we have 
endeavored to maintain high standards in every respect and 
evolve something of real merit and worthy of the commenda- 
tion of all who are interested in the advancement of Texas. 

This volume is devoted exclusively to West Texas and 
the Panhandle Plains Section of Texas. Our next edition will 
be devoted to other cities and sections not included herein. 

The object of the work is three-fold in its nature: To 
place before the people of the United States reliable histori- 
cal, educational, social, biographical, financial, industrial and 
general information which will exert a powerful influence in 
behalf of Texas by making known in a most effective way, 
her many attractive advantages, great undeveloped natural 
resources, industrial development and opportunities, remark- 
able financial strength, excellent educational facilities, social 
refinement and splendid type of citizenship. The resultant 
effect of this will inevitably be the enrollment, under the 
banner of the great Lone Star State, of additional desirable 
citizens, active capital and thriving industries, for the up- 
building of our State and the increasing of prosperity within 
our borders. 

To preserve, in the libraries and homes of Texas, a 
permanent record of our progress along various lines and a 
fair representation of the men and women identified with 
our commercial, professional and social activities at this time. 
The great historical value of this book to the future genera- 
tions of Texans is beyond realization at the present time. 

To make imperishable the splendid records of our 
patriotic men and women who thrust aside their own interests 
and put on the Armor of Service and Sacrifice in the recent 
great struggle for the liberation of humanity, and also to 
create a lasting memorial which will perpetuate, in the 
libraries of the Nation and in the historical organizations, 
public libraries and homes of Texas, the names of our noble 
Texas heroes who made the supreme sacrifice of their lives 
that we may have freedom. 


The credit for the existence of this hook and all the 
good it will accomplish in various ways, at home and abroad, 
is due to those loyal, puhlic-spirited, patriotic Texans shown 
herein as its creators. 

In justice to those having- personal representation herein 
we wish to state that no one was included in this wort 
biographically or pictorially at his or her own request, bul 
only because of* having been favorably passed upon, as t<? 
eligibility, by a local Selective Advisory Committee. 

THE WHO'S WHO SECTION, limited and restricted 
to those receiving an invitation issued by request of tin 
State Chai r man and the local Selective Arvisory Committee. 
This registration is complimentary and without cost and in- 
curs no obligation. This very important section gives con- 
cise, conservative data regarding bankers, educators, attor- 
neys, officials, manufacturers, physicians, dentists and othei 
professional and business men and women, constituting a re 
liable record reflecting credit upon our citizenship. 

PHOTO ILLUSTRATIONS of Texans identified with 
various professional, social, musical, educational, civic and 
commercial activities, are shown to make better known to tin 
citizens of our entire State those entitled to this recognition 
and also to seive as a most effective and dignified introduc- 
tion of them to the people of other States. This feature adds 
a phase of deep human interest not otherwise obtainable. 

THE HONOR ROLL of the Military Section perpetu- 
ates all the available names of those brave Texans who sc 
heroically fought and made the supreme sacrifice of theii 
lives, in the recent great World War. 

In the MILITARY SECTION due recognition is giver, 
for the valor, heroism, sacrifices and effective service rend- 
ered by our patriotic men and women. 

To our patrons and the many Chambers of Commerce, Mer- 
chants ' Associations, Banks, Officials and others who by theii 
effective co-operation assisted in the great success of this 
undertaking, we take this means of expressing our grate 
ful appreciation. 



Wichita Falls 





JOSEPH A KEMP was born at Clifton, 
Bosque County, Texas, July 31, 1861, the 
son of William T. and Emma F. (Stinnett) 
Kemp. Was educated in the common schools 
ot Bosque County, going into business at the 
age of eighteen at Clifton, which business he 
conducted successfully for two years. He sold 
this business at a nice profit, and in 1883 
moved to Wichita Falls, which was then the 
terminus of the Fort Worth & Denver Rail- 

His first business enterprise in Wichita 
Falls was that of a small general merchandise 
store, which he conducted successfully until he 
sold out in 1887. In 1890 he purchased from 
C. C. White the wholesale grocery business 
which he conducted as the J. A. Kemp Whole- 
sale Grocery Co. Under his control this business 
prospered exceedingly, until it was doing a 
business of more than $1,000,000 a year, 
branches having been established at different 
points in the western part of the state. In 1903 
Mr. Kemp sold the controlling interest, in the 
above grocery company to Mr. Blair and Mr. 
Hughes. However, he still has an interest in 
the company and is its Vice-President. This 
business, now the Blair and Hughes Company, 
is one of the leading wholesale grocery con- 
cerns of the Southwest. 

Probably the most valuable work done by 
Mr. Kemp has been his activity as a builder 
and promoter of railroads. His first venture 
was the organization, with associates, of a 
company and the building of a railroad from 
Henrietta to Wichita Falls, this being the sec- 
ond railroad built into Wichita Falls. He 
served as President of this road for a number 
of years, and under his management it was ex- 
tended four hundred and thirty miles, em- 
bracing the Wichita Falls & Northwestern 
Railroad, extending from Wichita Falls to 
Forgan, Oklahoma, the Wichita Falls and 
Wellington Railroad, from Altus, Okla. to Well- 
ington, Texas, and the Wichita Falls & South- 
ern, extending from Wichita Falls to New- 

Mr. Kemp was President during the pro- 
motion and construction of all these lines and 
remained President until 1911, at which time 
(hese properties were acquired by the M. K. & 
T. Railway Company, Mr. Kemp remaining as 
Vice-President. In 1920 Mr. Kemp, together 
with his partner and associate, Mr. Ftank Kell, 
of Wichita Falls, repurchased the Wichita 
Falls & Southern Railway Company, Mr. Kemp 
resuming the presidency. This road is now be- 
ing extended from Newcastle through Graham, 
Eliasville, Jimkern and other towns, into Breck- 

In 1891 Mr. Kemp was elected to the office 
of President of the City National Bank of 
Wichita Falls, a position which he has filled to 
the present time. The capital and surplus of 
this bank, (which was consolidated in 1920 

with the National Bank of Commerce and is 
now known as the City National Bank of Com- 
merce) aggregates $2,500,000.00, 'making it 
one of the strongest financial concerns in the 
State of Texas. It is a model institution and 
has quarters in its own magnificent thirteen 
story building. 

Mr. Kemp, together with his associate, Mr. 
Kell, builded the Wichita Falls Traction 
Company, of which he is President. The main 
line of this road operates between iWichita 
Falls and Lake Wichita, and along the routs 
of which are located the Wichita Falls Win- 
dow Glass Company, Ball Brothers Fruit Jar 
Company and the Wichita Motor Company 

Through his instrumentality there was brought 
to Wichita Falls the Wichita Motor Company, a 
new enterprise for Texas, which is one of the 
largest concerns of its kind in the Southwest, 
its products being sold in eighty foreign coun- 
tries. Mr. Kemp is Chairman of the Board of 
this Company. 

Mr. Kemp is Vice-President of the Texhoma 
Oil & Refining Company, one of the most suc- 
cessful refineries in Texas. 

There stands as a monument to Mr. Kemp's 
public-spiritedness a magnificent public library 
which bears his name and which he presented 
to the City of Wichita Falls. 

Probably his greatest ambition has been to 
perfect an irrigation system whereby the flood 
waters of the Big Wichita River will be im- 
pounded and furnish water for the irrigation 
of approximately 150,000 acres of farm land, 
and in addition make available to the City of 
Wichita Falls an inexa/.istible supply of water 
for all purposes. This project has been Mr. 
Kemp's dream and ambition for the past thirty 
years, and the success of the same is now in 
sight, as water improvement districts have been 
created and bonds voted to the amount of 
$4,500,000,00 for this purpose. Actual work 
on this irrigation system will be begun during 
the year 19 21. 

The fact that Wichita Falls is the magnifi- 
cent little city that it is, is due very largely 
to the vitalizing energy of Mr. Kemp. He has 
always had the City's welfare first in mind. 
He is probably the most beloved man in the 
City. Politically, he is a democrat; fraternally, 
he is a Mason, having attained the degree of 
a Knight of the Court of Honor; he is a Shrin 
er, member of the Knights of Pythias and Be- 
nevolent and Protective Order of Elks; he is 
a director in several large corporations; his 
church is the Presbyterian. 

During the World War Mr. Kemp was Chair- 
man of all the Liberty Loan Committees in 
Wichita 'County, and Wichita County over- 
subscribed its quota of every issue, making a 
very enviable record. Mr. Kemp was also dili- 
gent in Red Cross Work and all war activities, 
giving freely of his time and means. No man in 
Texas, nor in the United States, was more 
zealous or patriotic during the war than he. 





President of the History Club of San Antonio. 

THE history of Texas is unique in 
many ways. First, we are the only 
State which has been under the dominion 
of six flags ; second we are the only State 
which has been an independent Repub- 
lic ; third, we are the only State which 
really has a flag of its own; fourth, only 
one other State besides Texas (excepting 
the original colonies) came into the 
Union without passing the probation 
stage of being a territory. 

The first settlement in Texas was made 
by LaSalle, in the name of France, early 
in 1685, on the Gulf Coast, being called 
Fort St. Louis. Two years later the stout- 
hearted LaSalle was slain by traitorous 

During this time Spain became much 
exercised over the news that France had 
laid hands upon what Spain considered 
her territory, for she claimed everything 
bordering on the Gulf of Mexico. She 
sent Captain DeLeon with his Spanish 
soldiers to oust the French from Fort St. 
Louis. They, however, found that the 
colonists, left without a leader, had near- 
ly all been massacred and the fort had 
been abandoned.. DeLeon, taking pos- 
session in the name of Spain, it is said, 
called the country Texas because of the 
neighboring tribe of friendly Indians — 
the word Texas, in their tongue, mean- 
ing friends. Others claim that our name 
came from the Tehas Indians. 

The Spaniards established themselves 
in Texas and their Franciscan monks 
founded our wonderful Missions, the 
most famous being the Alamo, in 1744; 
San Jose, begun in 1718, and Concepcion, 
all on the San Antonio River. The two 
latter were centers of activity for nearly 
a century. 

Being a part of the State of Coahuila, 
Mexico, Texas passed under the domin- 
ion of Mexico in 1821, when Mexico es- 
tablished its independence from Spain. 

American colonists filtered in grad- 
ually and finally became numerous and 

important. Mexico, becoming alarmed 
at the increasing numbers of Americans, 
resolved to crush their rising power. 
Many battles followed, including the 
massacre of the Alamo, on March 6th, 
1836, and culminating with the victory 
of the Americans, under General Sam 
Houston, in the Battle of San Jacinto, on 
April 21st, 1836. 

Shortly afterward Texas formally de- 
clared her independence and establish- 
ed herself as a republic. Mexico refused 
to acknowledge the independence of 
Texas and when, in 1845, the Republic 
entered the L^nited States as the State of 
Texas, war between the United States 
and Mexico resulted. 

Texas progressed rapidly until the 
War Between the States, when it joined 
the Southern Confederacy in 1861. 

Unlike in the other Southern States, 
the Federal armies did not penetrate the 
interior and Texas thus escaped the rav- 
ages and horrors of war, although it did 
suffer, as did its sister States, during the 
period of reconstruction after the war. 

Those days of trouble and humiliation 
under military rule passed with the re- 
tirement of Governor Davis and the 
election of Governor Coke in 187^. the 
free choice of the people of Texas. Since 
that time Texas has become the Em- 
pire State of the South, greater in pop- 
ulation and wealth than any of the 
other Southern States. 

To Texas: 

Ever-generous Mother of Man, wheth- 
er under the fleur-de-lis of France, the 
golden and bloody banner of Spain, the 
eagle and cactus of Mexico, the lone star 
of the Texas Republic, the Stars and Bars 
of the Confederacy, or the Stars and 
Stripes of the Union — glorious in your 
past history, may you be even greater 
in the future — Texas, fair Texas! 





1\/ EST Texas today offers unpararlell- 
"» ed opportunities for capital and set- 
tlement. It is one of the very few "em- 
pires within itself" that has not yet been 
overpopulated, overworked and over-em- 
ployed. Its lands have never been tested 
out fully. Its mountains full of minerals 
have not been tapped. Its opportunities 
for the poor man as well as the rich ba- 
ron are so stupendous and so multifold 
that years of intensified immigration and 
financial investment will be necessary in 
order to bring a plethora of either. 
Thousands of persons are annually rush- 
ing to other sections of the country, to 
invest their money and to make their 
habitations, who would quickly appreci- 
ate the varied advantages here if the 
country were as well advertised. Un- 
fortunately the country has never receiv- 
ed this widespread publicity. Develop- 
ment has been gradual. There have been 
no abandonments of the West by those 
who have come. 

When the West underwent the great- 
est hardships ever known, due to a two 
years' drouth, there was born an organi- 
ation which has been a life-saver to this 
section of the State, made its people more 
progressive and cooperative and brought 
about a wonderful new development 
which will continue until the country 
itself has become as populous as Nevv 
York State. This organization was 
brought into being primarily to help the 
larger towns, but it became such a great 
help that it has now spread over the en- 
tire Western portion of the State. It has 
5000 members and serves over 260 towns 
cities and hamlets. It has saved its mem- 
bers millions of dollars bringing about 
a closer cooperation among the people, 
relieving car shortages, getting farm la- 
bor, advertising the country, helping the 
farmer, and what not. 

The organization began to make its 
first big impression when Porter A. 
Whaley was made general manager. He 
had had years of experience in commer- 
cial work in West Texas and Southeast- 
ern States. His knowledge of the West 
was intimate, made so by years of concen- 
trated study of its conditions and needs. 
So that when he undertook to put this 
organization into operation he used more 

faith than cash. The cash for its opera- 
tion came as a result of undeniable and 
beneficial work that he performed and 
results that he accomplished. In two 
years it has grown from a membership 
that could be counted on the fingers and 
toes to more than 5,000, making it by 
far the largest regional Chamber of Com- 
merce in the world. It exceeds in point of 
membership the State Chamber of Com- 
merce and all other regional organiza- 
tions of a similar mission, in the state, 
combined. And its greatest growth is 
still in the future. 

The Traffic Department of the Asso- 
ciation, located at Fort Worth under the 
management of Ed. P. Byars, traffic ex- 
pert, has won its spurs as no other similar 
division of an organization has ever done. 
When West Texas crops were the great- 
est and the car shortage situation the 
most serious, Byars woke up the I. C. C. 
and brought about an investigation which 
resulted in the locating of sufficient cars 
to remove crops that would otherwise 
have been destroyed. His department has 
been able to secure specific rates, install 
new passenger and freight trains where 
condition warranted, trace wayward 
cars and facilitate movement of large 
shipments that had been sidetracked on 
"blind" sidings. Many new passenger 
stations were improved. The department 
has an enviable record for having ameli- 
orated the transportation situation 
throughout the West. 

The Organization Department, under 
the management of William T. Wheeler 
of Waco, has a personnel of four in- 
cluding B. F. Bennett, Abilene, Wilson K. 
Whipple, Stamford, and J. E. Farrow, 
Fort Worth. In addition to "lining up 
towns" [for the organization, it helps 
communities to organize their own cham- 
bers of commerce, planning civic innova- 
tions ani improvements, raising of money 
for public purposes, etc. It has a wonder- 
fully successful tenure and has been of 
unestimated benefit to the 260 towns 
that have called upon it. 

The Publicity Department, under the 
managership of William Hamilton 
Wright , has established a brilliant re- 
cord in volume of publicity secured for 
the West. The story of the West has gone 


the rounds. New industries have moved 
in. Measures for the benefit of the peo- 
ple have been revived. Great matters 
have been agitated and fructified. The 
daily news service of this department 
goes to fifteen newspapers, in addition 
to numerous special articles to the coun- 
try press, industrial and commercial 
journals, and magazines and trades jour- 
nal. The manager of this department has 
had many years of active experience in 
large newspaper offices and knows how 
to place his "stuff." 

During legislative sessions at Austin, 
the organization maintains a bureau at 
the capital. It studies legislation and 
fights to get favors for West Texas and 
thwarts inimical measures against it. 
This will be a permanent feature. 

In Washington, a bureau is maintain- 
ed in active operation, the year around, 
under a capable manager. It takes cog- 
nizance of all matters that affect West 
Texas and furnishes national service that 
could not otherwise be secured. 

At Stamford are the headquarters of 
the organization. Here the manager, pub- 
licity manager, exhibit manager, farm 
bureau manager, and two office secreta- 
ries transact the immense bulk of busi- 
ness under the various departments. 

The Exhibit and Farm Bureau divi- 
sion has had a meteoric success. In the 
last eight months it has sent agricultural 
exhibits to all the state and interstate 
fairs of the North, East and South, at- 
tracting attention and capital to this sec- 
tion. It was under the management- 
ship of J. C. Wells. The Farm Bureau 
Department has now begun to function. 
It is a strictly agricultural adjunct and is 
meeting with favor among the farmers 
who through it have a splendid medium 
for expression and solution of their num- 
erous vexatious problems. 

The free employment service of the 
organization, under the managership of 
William Hamilton Wright, has won a 
place in the West Texas Chamber of 
Commerce activities that shines far and 
steady. During the year it was the savior 
of the wheat harvest by importing 
thousands of men. During the cotton 
season it attracted thousands of pickers. 
It is absolutely free to all towns in West 

Texas. No "head fee" is charged. This 
department is patterned on the United 
States Employment Service plan and has 
found publicity the greatest medium for 
procuring labor. 

The Administration and Service De- 
partments at Stamford transact the bulk 
of business outside the lines specifically 
described. Any matter that needs general 
aid is referred to the organization at 
Stamford and action is immediately tak- 
en by the department under which it 
falls. If it be a matter for no special de- 
partment it is placed under the Service 

The organization, realizing the utmost 
benefit that accrues from publicity, has 
established a quarterly magazine of 
splendid merit named "West Texas To- 
day," which has a circulation of 5000. 
Porter A. Whaley is manager and W. 
Hamilton Wright, editor. The country 
press is furnished from week to week 
with news items of a development nature. 
Also a weekly "Letter of Hints" is mailed 
to all town units. 

By means of the Traffic Department 
many small town merchants, who have 
reason to believe that they are being 
overcharged for shipments of freight, 
can take the question up with the organi- 
zation's traffic manager and learn as 
well as secure the return of all over- 
charges. Cars can be traced or furnish- 
ed or expedited. 

The "Secret Service" bureau has saved 
many towns from being fleeced by un- 
scrupulous stock salesmen. In one case 
the organization nipped in the bud a plan 
to squeeze several hundred thousand dol- 
lars out of one town. Now the West Texas 
towns, visited by stock salesmen without 
a conscience, are protected, for the mem- 
ber towns immediately take up the mat- 
ter by wire with the parent organization, 
and get information on the character and 
standing of the concern that seeks to do 

In any way that a country can be de- 
veloped beneficially the West Texas 
Chamber of Commerce works. It has 
done wonders in the last two years and 
is now becoming such a powerful organi- 
zation for good that its greatest work 
lies in the future. 




THE words "Texas Panhandle" consti- 
tute a term not unfamiliar in any 
state of this nation. It is the name of a 
section which has played its part in 
many events of historical importance 
and on account of its later development 
and the peculiar conditions and rela- 
tionship to other sections, has in these 
later years been of singular interest to 
the historian and of still more interest 
to the opportunity hunter. 

The tide of immigration toward the 
west in the earlier days divided its cur- 
rents to the north and south, for more 
than half a century leaving this region 
untouched by its eddies, so that while 
cities grew in Kansas, Colorado, New 
Mexico and Texas, the Panhandle still 
remained the hunting ground and bat- 
tlefield of the Indian tribes. In the later 
years of this period the century old pas- 
tures of the plains, in the mutation of 
time passed, by inheritance, from the 
buffalo to the herds of the rancher and 
the order of civilization had its begin- 
ning in the Panhandle. 

When you say "Texas Panhandle" 
you are speaking of that portion of the 
state bounded on the south by a line 
beginning at the Red River where it 
becomes the boundary between Texas 
and Oklahoma and extending westward 
to New Mexico. 

On a good map one will see depicted 
as a mountain slope, beginning south of 
the Canadian River and extending 
southward in an irregular course across 
this region, the eastern escarpment of 
the Llano Estacado. This immense ele- 
vation — the "High Plains," — extends 
southward for three hundred miles, 
sloping gradually upward from its 
eastern borders until at the western Tex- 
as line it reaches an altitude of five 
thousand feet abovei sea level. There 
are those who claim that the "Staked 
Plains" constitute the region to which 
tradition and custom have given the 
designation of the "Texas Panhandle," 
as possessing the peculiar attributes at- 
tached to that name and fame. 

To the east and south of the lofty 
"cap rock" of the Llando Estacado and 
the tumbling hills of the "breaks" be- 
low, the country slopes away to the 
lower levels of the state with a success- 

ion of changes in soils, climate and pro- 

The streams of this region are the big, 
broad, sandy Canadian, with its mighty 
bordering hills and extended "breaks" ; 
the Prarie Dog Creek, — so designated 
by geographers, — but better known as 
the Palo Duro, which rises in the staked 
Plains scarcely forty miles south of the 
Canadian and cuts its way through the 
plains in a deep and wonderfully beau- 
tiful gorge until where it breaks through 
the cap rock and opens out as the wide 
and sandy bed of the Red River; the 
North Fork of the Red River in the east- 
ern Panhandle, the Red Deer Creek, 
and many others of lesser note. In the 
lower Staked Plains are the headwaters 
of the Brazos and Colorado Rivers. In 
various parts of the Panhandle there are 
beautiful streams of living water, such 
as the Tierra Blanco, the Tule, the Palo 
Duro, the Running Water, Wolf Creek, 
the Palo Duro of the North Plains, and 
many others. 

North of the Canadian River there is 
a section known as the "North Plains", 
or "Trans-Canadian Plains". Generally 
speaking, this entire region, to the Beav- 
er River in the Oklahoma "strip", is a 
high level plain rising gradually from 
3600 feet to 8800 feet in the 16*5 miles 
of its extent from the eastern to the 
western boundaries of the Panhandle. 
That soetion of the Staked Plains, lying 
south of the Panhandle proper, is usu- 
ally designated as the "South Plains". 

With its many prosperous cities and 
towns, its rich agricultural resources, its 
industrious and commercial development 
and potential mineral wealth, the Pan- 
handle today spreads its endless expanse 
under smiling skies, the home of a hap- 
py people. Under present conditions, it 
is hard to understand the opprobrium at- 
taching to the name in the early days. 
Historians discuss the country in a para- 
graph, describing the Llano Estacado as 
a barren region where the government 
sent expeditions in vain attempts to find 
water. The region was held in such con- 
tempt by the older portions of the state 
that the Panhandle territory was lav- 
ishly exploited for their benefit. Three 
million acres went at one dollar per 
acre to build a state house and other 



millions were squandered in free grants 
to help build railroads in central and 
southern Texas. 

The present development in the Pan- 
handle began in 1887, when its first 
railroad was built, — The Fort Worth & 
Denver City. At that time the country 
had reached the acme of its fame as a 
cattle country, which endured for many 
years afterward. Other railroads, — the 
Santa Fe and Rock Island, — soon fol- 
lowed, and shortly thereafter the home- 
seeker began to straggle in and gained 
the euphonious name of "nester", with 
his little nest of two to four sections in 
the midst of the cattle ranches. 

As the result of the pioneer work of 
the "nester", the railroad companies, in 
1900, began a systematic campaign in 
the east, advertising the agricultural 
possibilities of the Panhandle, which re- 
sulted in one of the greatest organized 
immigration movements of the country, 
beginning in 1902 and continuing for 
several years. The increase in popula- 
tion of these twenty-six counties since 
that time is shown by the census figures. 
T n 1900 there were 21,278 people; in 
'910, 90,137; and in 1920, 115,069. 
This growth is particularly indicative of 
agricultural development, upon which 
present conditions depend almost en- 

In 1900, and for ten years previously, 
Amarillo, favorably situated as it was 
on many trails of the cow country, was 
the greatest cattle shipping point in the 
world and there were other points 
which pressed her close for that distinc- 
tion. Very rapidly thereafter the large 
lease holdings of the cattle kings passed 
into the hands of the farmer, until now 
the large ranches can be counted on 
the fingers of one hand and the live- 
stock production has changed in its 
character. The peculiar adaptability of 
the soil and climate to the growing of 
the grain sorghums has made stock 
farming the principal occupation and 
the Panhandle now furnishes to the 
world more and better beef on the hoof 
than in the days of the big ranches and 

These never-failing food crops also 
form the foundation for the dairy in- 
dustry which has alrady attained quite 
considerable proportions and is destined 
in time to add millions to the wealth of 
the Panhandle. 

It is a well established fact that all 
conditions of climate and soil production 
conspire to produce all classes of live- 
stock of exceptional vigor in this sec- 
tion. Hogs and cattle, particularly, are 
produced in the full perfection of the 
standard breeds and it is confidently 
predicted that in the years to come the 
Panhandle will be looked to for breed- 
ing stock to go to all parts of the world. 

In the past decade the great Pan- 
handle wheat belt has reached propor- 
tions sufficient to make itself a very 
considerable factor in the food supply 
of the country. This belt lies princi- 
pally upon the higher plains of the Pan- 
handle proper and the South Plains. 
Under varying conditions its production 
ranges from 20,000,000 to 30,000,000 
bushels, while kafir corn, milo maize 
and kindred crops will average about 
twice the wheat production and more 
than equal it in value. Oats, barley, 
rye are produced in sufficient quantities 
to supply the local needs, with a surplus 
for shipment. The latest available fig- 
ures of the total agricultural production, 
including livestock, in the Panhandle 
and South Plains, show a value of $300,- 

In the lower eastern section of the 
Panhandle, cotton is an important crop, 
contributing hundreds of thousands of 
bales to the world's supply. This sec- 
tion also produces Indian corn in abund- 

Extending from the northwest to the 
southeast, across the western portion of 
the Panhandle and central South Plains, 
is a shallow water belt where irrigation 
is practiced to some extent. Elsewhere 
water is obtained by deep wells at vary- 
ing depths from 100 to 250 feet. All of 
this water is of exceptional purity. 

The mineral wealth of the Panhandle, 
as developed at this writing, appears to 
be confined to natural gas, petroleum 
and salt, with a possibility of potash. 
Gas has already been developed in sev- 
eral localities in enormous quantities 
and oil in commercial quantities is a cer- 
tainty. Five wells in the vicinity of 
Amarillo are producing 300,000,000 
cubic feet of gas per day and one well 
in Carson County is yielding 1000 bar- 
rels of oil daily. This oil and gas field 
has been surveyed with more or less 
definiteness from New Mexico eastward 
across the whole extent of the Pan- 
handle. Salt has been found at depths 



of 200 to 300 feet in great deposits a 
hundred feet thick, and the government 
has established by its tests the existence 
of potash in paying quantities. 

Climatically speaking, the Panhandle 
is the land where the cactus and the 
sunflower meet. The tints painted by 
nature are the white and deep blue of 
the sky and the gray-green landscape. 
High elevation and an atmosphere too 
light, for the heavy flight of the crow 
and buzzard, the proximity of the 
Rocky Mountains and their influence on 
winds and air currents, and the low 
coasts and waters of the Gulf to the 
south, are the factors determining clim- 
atic conditions. Although classed as 
semi-arid, this section has an annual 
rainfall varying in different sections 
from twenty-two to thirty-four inches. 
This comes in the spring and fall at 
times best suited for agricultural pur- 

Official records show at Amarillo the 
average mean temperature in winter of 
43° and in summer 69". The percentage 
of sunshine by hours for a year is 88. 
This is a land of hot sunshine and cool 
shade. Its nights bear the breath of the 
isles of the blest and perfect rest en- 
folds him who lies down to sleep. Insect 
pests of all descriptions are almost un- 

The climatic conditions of the Pan- 
handle are antagonistic to disease. Mal- 
aria is an entire stranger and no tuber- 
culosis is ever contracted. Under ordin- 
ary sanitary precautions epidemics are 
easily controlled and the vital statistics 
of the Panhandle are remarkable in 
medical annals. 

The Panhandle is served, in its trans- 
portation needs, by three of the strong- 
est railroad systems of the country, not- 
ed for their constructive policies. These 
have already been noted. While it can 
be said that railroad construction is 
barely begun in this territory, yet it is a 
fact that there are now only three coun- 
ties in the Panhandle without railroad 
facilities and two in the South Plains. 
The automobile and motor truck are 
rapidly coming into this field and bring- 
ing the remotest rancher or community 
into close touch with the arteries of 
trade. Generally speaking, the contour 
of the country and the character of soil 
render the construction and mainten- 
ance of good roads a comparatively 
easy matter. In a majority of the coun- 

ties highway construction receives its 
merited share of the public funds and 
attention and efforts of the citizenship. 

The citizenship of the Panhandle and 
plains country is practically entirely of 
the white American born type. There is 
very little waste humanity within their 
bounds. It is a citizenry that takes 
pride in its churches, schools and other 
public institutions — one that seeks and 
follows the ways of progress. This 
spirit is reflected in every town and vil- 
lage in modern school buildings, hand- 
some churches, imposing court houses, 
splendid homes, paved streets and pub- 
lic utilities. 

It is impossible to ascribe preeminence 
to any town in the Panhandle or South 
Plains. Situated at the Junction of the 
three railroads, Amarillo has, through 
its railroad facilities, acquired domin- 
ance in the commerce of the region and 
has the largest population of any town. 
In these respects, however, it is closely 
followed by Dalhart in the North Plains 
Childress, Memphis, Clarendon, Canad- 
ian, Hereford, and in the South Plains 
by Plainview, Floydada, Lockney and 
Lubbock. In the extreme northeastern 
portion, on the new branch of the Santa 
Fe Railway, Perryton and Spearman are 
attracting the attention of commerce. 

Plainview and Clarendon have earned 
distinction as educational centers and at 
Canyon is located the West Texas State 
Normal, one of the most magnificent 
and best equipped of the State's educa- 
tional institutions. 

On account of their enormous tonnage 
of grain delivered to the railroads at 
their stations, the "trade" is familiar 
with the names of Stratford, Texline, 
Texhoma, Miami, Pampa, Panhandle, 
Hereford, Groom, McLean and Claude. 
Shamrock, Wellington, Memphis and 
Clarendon speak to commerce with their 
cotton and corn, and the new town of 
Farwell is famous as the home of the 
XIT Syndicate and the millions of acres 
of rich farming lands it has colonized. 

This is but an epitome of an epic of 
the past and a prophecy of an epoch of 
the future in an empire portion of the 
great state of Texas. A large majority 
of the inhabitants of the Panhandle 
boast of Texas nativity and have trans- 
planted to their new homes all the tra- 
ditions of the Lone Star State, whose 
history is their history and whose future 
greatness is also their's. 



Progressive Cities of the Panhandle 
and West Texas 

The Capital of the Thirty-Eight North 
Texas Counties Known as the 
Texas Panhandle 

Upon the wideflung plains of the Pan- 
handle of Texas and under the crystal- 
line skies, there lurks a lure stronger 
than the spell of the "Waters of Caney 
Fork." Who drinks once of its vitalize 
ing air must needs return to drink 
again, and he who once falls under the 
spell of the prairie and canyon, the glory 
of its sunsets and the wine of its morn- 
ing winds knows that here life finds its 
greatest vigor and zest and effort its 
surest reward. Nature has endowed the 
land with her choicest riches for all 
production, to meet the needs of man 
and beast and here the pioneers of the 
land have laid the foundation broad 
and deep for the needs of commerce and 
all requirements of civilized man. 
When all the story has been told and 
the Panhandle comes into its own, here 
will be found the warm beating heart 
and fountain of vigor of the greatest 
empire the world has ever known, the 
most sought and the best loved spot in 
all the vast territory of America. This 
is the land of which the poet speaks: 

"Out where the world is in the making, 
Where fewer hearts in despair are breaking, 

Thafs where the West begins. 
"Where there's more of singing and less of 

Where there's more of giving and less of buying 
And a man makes friends without half trying, 

That's where the West begins." 

In the midst of that setting, rests the 
Gem, Amarillo. Amarillo is pre-emin- 
ently the Convention City for the Pan- 
handle and the recognized center of 
one of the principal wheat and other 
small grain helts of the Nation. 

The proven gas field, which lies 
twenty-five miles northwest of Amarillo, 
is the largest in the world, measuring 
fifteen miles in width by twenty miles 
in length. 

This gas tests on an average of 1100 
b. t. u.'s of heat per cubic foot, which 
represents about four times as many 
units as is contained in artificial gas. 
The most eminent of geologists predict 
its longivity to be at least thirty years. 

Amarillo has as good water as can be 
found anywhere. It is pure for drinking 
purposes and contains no chemical ele- 
ments injurious for boiler use. 

Amarillo Board of City Development is a 
department of the City Government, 
financed by taxation to function as a 
Chamber of Commerce. It is the only 
one of its kind operating independent of 
a subsidiary support and has attracted 
wide attention over the Nation. It is 
non-political and served by voluntary 
citizens who act as Directors of the var- 
ious committees. 

It is always alert and ever ready to 
induce all worthy new-comers, large or 
small factories, firms and individuals to 
locate in Amarillo. 

The railroad payrolls here amount to 
$2,371,411.00 yearly.

The Rcof Garden of Texas 

Alpine is familiarly known as the 
"Roof Garden of Texas" and is situated 
on the Continental Divide with an eleva- 
tion 4,484 feet. 

The highest point on the entire South- 
ern Pacific system between the Gulf of 
Mexico and Pacific Ocean. Popula- 
tion 3000. Alpine is truly the health 
seekers haven and the summer tourists' 
paradise. It is surrounded by marvelous 
scenery with a summer climate as de- 
lightfully cool as Colorado or California. 
Why leave Texas to spend your sum- 

With its alJ-the-year round climate, 
Alpine is destined to become the educa- 
tional center of West Texas. 

The High School is located in the cen- 
ter of the residence district, the building, 
placed in the center of an eight acre 
campus, is of modern structure and 
thoroughly equipped. Employing nine- 
teen teachers, the school has fifteen 
units of affiliation. 

The Sul Ross State Normal College 
was located at Alpine in 1917, and 
opened its doors for students in June, 
1920. Completely equipped, with as 



well trained a faculty as can be found 
in any school in Texas, it offers unex- 
celled opportunities to any who desire a 
higher education. With plans on foot 
to care for an attendance of 500 or more 
students, it bids fair to become the most 
useful school of higher education in 
West Texas. 

Alpine is fortunate in having a repre- 
sentation of the strongest protestant de- 
nominations. The Baptists, Christians, 
Methodists and Presbyterians all have 
erected modern buildings and maintain 
resident pastors. Plans are under way 
for the construction of an Episcopal 
Chapel, and the Roman Catholics main- 
tain an organization which is adequate 
to care for their membership. 

Alpine can well be called "A City of 
Schools and Churches." 

Brewster County, of which Alpine is 
the County Seat, is one of the best stock- 
raising counties in Texas. The countv 
contains nearly 3,500,000 acres of land, 
the majority of which is unsurpassed 
for stockraising. There are in Brewster 
county more than 200,000 head of cat- 
tle, horses, sheep and goats. Where 
twenty years ago roamed the Texas 
Longhorn, today peacefully browse the 
registered Herefords, Durham and An- 

There are found 52 varieties of native 
grasses that mature after the rainy 
season, and never rot in the mild win- 
ters, and are able, except in very rare 
instances, to adequately care for and 
feed the stock during the winter months. 

This is the ideal section for the small 
stockraiser as well as the large. 

To fully appreciate this marvelous in- 
dustry it is necessary that you visit and 
inspect for yourse^ these ranches 
where Peace, Plenty, Prosperity and 
Haopiness reign supreme.

the United States. 

Brewster County is rich in Copper, 
Silver, Coal, Iron, Sulphur, Potash, Lead, 
Opal, Topaz, Zinc and Gold. 

The mineral resources of Brewster 
County have been but scratched. 

The most delightful year-round clim- 
ate in America. No mosquitoes or mc.l-

Bowie is situated 69 miles northwest 
of Ft. Worth, on the Denver and Rock 
Island Railroads, and is also on the Mer- 
idian road. It is in the center of a broad 
trade territory. On the east of Bowie 
there are small farms suitable for truck 
and fruit raising. On the west of Bowie 
there are large farms suitable to stock 
and small grain raising. Bowie has 
about 4000 inhabitants, with eight 
church buildings, three school buildings. 
Gravel roads prevail through our town 
and county. Bowie has also the largest 
chicken hatchery in the South, its capac- 
ity being 61,000 eggs. 


Nature was lavish with her gifts when 
she established her treasure house in 
the western part of Wise County. Her 
soils are admirably suited to the grow- 
ing of all kinds of agricultural products. 
This section has valuable coal deposits 
and here is to be found the finest qual- 



ity of fire clay. There is enough lime- 
stone rock to build all the highways in 
Texas. The drills are now penetrating 
the earth and are uncovering promising 
oil pools. 

Bridgeport, the chief city in Western 
Wise County, is situated on the main 
line of the Rock Island Lines and is the 
junction point for the Graham branch 
as well as freight division. Three coal 
mines are in operation, also two brick 
plants, two stone crushers and a Million 
Dollar Cement Plant. Her transporta- 
tion facilities are unexcelled. It is situ- 
ated on a Pipe line and has an Oil Re- 
finery in actual operation. The proxim- 
ity to markets, accessibility to the Oil 
fields and good transportation facilities, 
render it an ideal location for the build- 
ing of a city. Good schools and church- 
es are found here and her people are 
happy, prosperous and contented. 

The city has a population of twenty- 
five hundred; surrounded by a well de- 
veloped farming community. Just now 
there is a live interest in building good 
roads. Small grains, cotton, peanuts, 
and hay are the principle crops grown. 

This section sits mid-way between the 
history and prophecy of North Texas. 
Her old men are the historians, her 
young men the prophets of tomorrow. 
On the soil dedicated by the blood of 
the pioneer, consecrated by the sacrifice 
and heroism of its first settlers, the 
voung men of this region are now build- 
ing imperishable monuments to the 
sturdy type of Americanism to be found 


Situated at the gateway to the Pan- 
handle, there is a County renowned for 
its livestock and agricultural produc- 
tion; and in this County of Childress, 
there is the City of Childress, especially 
famous for its active citizenship, its pro- 
gressiveness and civic pride. 

Although the city has been in exist- 
ence for only thirty years, it has ad- 
vanced steadily, with an annual increase 
in population, until now more than five 
thousand people make Childress their 
home; and in the county there are prac- 
tically eleven thousand; showing a rural 
population of about fifty per cent. 

Although much revenue accrues from 
the agricultural production and from 
the sale of livestock, there are other im- 
portant sources of wealth in the city. 

The Fort Worth and Denver City Rail- 
way Company maintains its shops in 
Childress, and hundreds of men are em- 
ployed there; so that in normal times a 
pay roll of about $100,000 is handled 
monthly. A large cotton compress 
which handles cotton from the sur- 
rounding counties as well as Childress, 
employs labor that adds considerably to 
the bank deposits of Childress. Modern 
steam laundries, grain elevators, and all 
of the usual West Texas industries are 
found in Childress. 

Ten blocks of pavement are now in 
the process of construction and many 
more are contemplated as soon as con- 
ditions will permit. In addition to this, 
four designated National Highways tra- 
verse Childress and Childress County, so 
that the automobile tourists find it con- 
venient to pause where good hotels, 
cafes, garages, and business houses can 
be found in abundance. Well marked 
roads guide them into and through the 
city limits, and out on the road of their 

Childress is situated on the Fort 
Worth and Denver, 220 miles Northwest 
of Fort Worth. The altitude is approx- 
imately 2,000 feet above the sea level, 
and the climate is mild, with a moderate 
annual rainfall. A more healthful clim- 
ate could hardly be found in the Lone 
Star State. 

Conditions are almost ideal for the 
production of grain, such as wheat, oats, 
barley, and rye ; also for feed stuffs, 
such as milo maize, feterita, kaffir, sor- 
ghums and other products that give a 
first class finish to the large numbers of 
cattle and hogs that are annually mark- 
eted from this territory. 

Swine production has been brought to 
a scientific basis by Childress breeders, 
and their fame is spreading rapidly 
throughout the United States. In fact, 
many other States are coming to the 
Childress country for swine to be used in 
building up their own herds. 

Childress is adequately advertised to 
the public through two progressive 
newspapers, one semi-weekly and One 
weekly; and by the activites of a live 
Chamber of Commerce. In addition to 
these, the Childress State Fair invites 
the competition of livestock and agricul- 
tural exhibits from all sections of the 
country and has never failed to uphold 
the reputation of Childress County as a 
strong livestock and farming center. 



Several deep tests are now being 
made for oil in the County, with appar- 
ently great chances for success, which 
will also contribute to the wealth and 
value of this county of diversified feat- 

With a vision of a greater Childress, 
its citizens are daily putting forth their 
efforts to build permanently. 


The City of Cisco is a live, progress- 
ive little city of 10,000 people, located 
one hundred and fifteen miles west of 
Fort Worth on the main line of th° 
Texas & Pacific railway. It may well 
be styled the "gateway" to the great 
West Texas section, being served by 
three railroads radiating in five direc- 
tions and by which the Central Texas 
oil fields may be easily reached, as well 
as all parts of West Texas. 

Cisco is quite a jobbing center, having 
three large wholesale grocery houses, 
two large produce houses, a hide and fnr 
house, several large oil well supply 
houses, a chair and casket wholesale 
distributing house, ice cream factory, 
mattress factory and foundry, all doing 
a large business all over West Texas. 

Cisco is also a city of homes and due 
to its good schools, splendid churches, 
good water and other modern improve- 
ments has attracted a large number of 
people to move here from the surround- 
ing oil fields. 

Cisco has many paved streets and a 
large additional number of streets are 
now being paved. 

Cisco has specially good school facil- 
ities. It has a modern high school and 
two grammar schools and a bond issue 
has recently been carried for $250,000.- 
00 to build a new high school. 

Practically all denominations are rep- 
resented in the churches of Cisco. 

In addition to being in close proximity 
to all the Central Texas oil fields, large 
deposits of clay, coal, mica and lime 
rock are to be found at Cisco. Some of 
these natural resources are now being 
developed on a large scale. 

Cisco is spending a million dollars for 
the construction of a mammoth concrete 
dam, two miles north of the city, which 
when completed will furnish a water 
supply to the city of approximately fif- 
teen billion gallons of water. Work has 
already started on this dam and it is 
expected tha^ it will be completed by 
January 1st, 1922. 


Originally, the land where Electra is 
now located was valued for pasturage 
purposes only, but it was soon found 
that this land was equally valuable for 
farming purposes, and corn, cotton and 
small grain crops such as wheat, were 
raised most successfully. In 1910 El- 
ectra had a population of only five hun- 

The growth of the city began on April 
1, 1911, with the completion of Clayco 
Oil Well No. 1. This opened up the 
greatest oil field in Texas, and one of 
the greatest in the world, covering a 
territory approximately forty miles in 
length and twenty miles in width — a 
territory of which Electra is the center, 
and of which 8.175 acres are proven. 

Because of the conservative manage- 
ment of the Electra Oil Field, and its 
central location, and because of the 
value of the territory about Electra for 
both farm and ranch purposes as well 
as for oil, Electra soon grew to be a city 
of homes and home builders, and, there- 
fore, to have a more permanent charac- 
ter than most oil towns. 

On August 25th, 1917, it adopted the 
City Manager form of government, 
which is believed, by authorities on such 
matters, to be one of the best forms of 
city management. 

The population of Electra in 1920 was 
4,744, but since then it has been raised 
to over 5,000 through the incorporation 
of various additions. The assessed val- 
uation of property in Electra in 1920 
was $3,000,000.00. As somewhat of an 
index to the climate of Electra, it might 
be stated this city has an annual average 
rainfall of twenty-five inches and an al- 
titude of 1,325 feet. 

Industrial Resources. 

The Electra Oil Field has been so 
conservatively and sanely developed 
that practically all of the old wells are 
still producing, including Clayco No. 1, 
so that at present there are more than 
two thousand oil wells producing a daily 
average of 11,500 barrels. This oil may 
be refined at either of two refineries 
which are located in Electra, in addition 
to two casinghead gasoline plants. 

Besides these plants connected with 
the oil industry, there are others, such 
as an ice plant, ice cream factory, two 
grain elevators, two cotton gins, two 
large machine shops, an electric light 
plant furnishing abundant and cheap el- 



ectric power, and a modern steam laun- 

Because of the rich farming lands, ex- 
tending to the Red River on the north 
and the Wichita River on the south, 
and the good roads connecting Electra 
therewith, modern retail stores in every 
line prosper here. Two national and one 
state bank, with deposits totaling over 
$2,000,000.00, are supported by this 
city. Electra also has a telephone sys- 
tem ranking among the best in the Unit- 
ed States. 

Civic Advantages. 

Electra has sixty blocks of paved 
streets, an abundant water supply (99 ^r 
pure by actual analysis), a sewer sys- 
tem installed over the city, beautiful 
homes, a $90,000.00 theater, schools of 
class AA rating with 22 V-> units affilia- 
tion with the universities of the state, 
and beautiful churches. 

During 1921 a city hospital, costing 
$25,000.00, will be completed. A city 
park and playground are now under 

The industrial and civic interests of 
Electra are being furthered by a well 
organized Chamber of Commerce con- 
sisting of two hundred and twenty-five 
members. This Chamber of Commerce is 
one of the best supported Chambers in 
the United States, its annual per capita 
support being $2.65. It now maintains a 
camp for tourists, providing free stoves 
for cooking, shower baths, and electric 



El Paso, the largest and most impor- 
tant city between Denver, Colorado, 
and the City of Mexico, or between San 
Antonio, Texas, and Los Angeles, Cal- 

The population of El Paso, 1920 cen- 
sus was 85,000. Altitude 3767 feet. 

During the past twenty years El Paso 
has increased in population 400 per 
cent. New settlers have found the cli- 
mate almost a specific for broken 
health, the seasons unusually favorable 
for all kinds of human endeavor, the 
economic conditions superior to those 
of many large centers and the oppor- 
tunities for investment of capital and 
energy incomparable. 

An average of 36 cloudy days annu- 
ally — average for five years. 

37 ' '< humidity on five years average 
— annual rain fall is less than 10 inches. 

High community standards, loyal and 
progressive citizenship, all make for the 
inevitable future building of the Great- 
er El Paso, which is gaining in popu- 
lation at the rate of 10 percent every 
year and now counts 90,000, with ap- 
proximately ] 0,000 more in its imme- 
diate suburbs. 

The principal point .of interest for 
visitors to El Paso is the Scenic Drive. 
This gives visitors a fine view of El 
Paso, the adjoining city of Juarez, Mex- 
ico, all of Fort Bliss and the Rio Grande 
Valley for many miles. The view is 
equally good from Scenic Drive at night 
or day time. 

Fort Bliss, 5 miles from the city is 
the headquarters of a brigade of troops. 

A ride down the valley, over well 
paved roads, will give you an idea of 
agricultural and trucking. 

In Ysleta — 12 miles from El Paso you 
will find buildings over a century old. 

Washington Park, the city's biggest 
recreation and amusement park. 

Texas School of Mines, a branch of 
the University of Texas. 

El Paso High School is located be- 
neath the rim of Scenic drive, and is 
well worth a visit. 

E! Paso's Smelter is second largest in 
the world and the Southwestern Port- 
land Cement Plant are interesting points 
to visitors and are easily reached by au- 

San Jacinto Plaza (4) is one of the 
beauty spots of the city. The alligators 
in the pool in the Plaza were brought 
to El Paso in 1382 in a cigar box from 

Jaurez, Mexico, just across the bor- 
der, has a population of approximately 
15,000 people, and is a most interesting 
point to visitors. 

Elephant Butte Dam. 110 miles from 
El Paso, is the largest body of water in 
the world controlled by man. The water 
from Elephant Butte Dam irrigates an 
area of 180,000 acres. 

El Paso is the social and commercial 
center of an area of 1,000,000 square 
miles — the dominant metropolis of a re- 
gion as large as the whole United States 
east of the Mississippi river — the strate- 
gic distribution point, both for passen- 
ger travel and trade and industrial traf- 
fic, in a circle of 1200 miles diameter. 
Permanent natural conditions forever 



protect El Paso from competition in 
chis vast region. 

Backed by its wonderful resources of 
mines, livestock, timber and agriculture, 
yielding millions annually. El Paso has 
not only become the chief manufactur- 
ing and wholesaling city of its territory, 
but is recognized as its center of edu- 
cation, religious activities, finance and 
merchandising. It compares most favor- 
ably with the largest cities of the coun- 
try in its attractive public and private 
edifices, residences, paved and lighted 
streets, parks, water supply and urban 
transportation. Even casual visitors are 
impressed with the civic pride and intel- 
lectual culture of the El Paso people. 
This city is the least provincial in the 
United States, the broadest in sym- 
pathies and activities. 

Situated where the Rio Grande cuts 
through the southernmost end of the 
Rocky Mountains, at the lowest snow- 
free pass over the Continental Divide, 
El Paso has become the greatest rail- 
road center west of the 100th meridian, 
and is the four-sided gateway for home- 
seekers and investers entering West 
Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and Mex- 



The Natural Gateway to Mexico. 

Located on the border, midway be- 
tween Mexico City and the North and 
East, tourists for Mexico should consider 
the Laredo Gateway. Travel from the 
North and East to Mexico City is about 
four hundred miles nearer by this route. 

Laredo has a population of approxi- 
mately 26,000, an increase of about 
sixty percent for the past ten year per- 
iod. Laredo is known throughout Texas 
for her industrial and financial stability. 
Laredo has developed under a conserv- 
ative policy; has had no booms. Her 
wealth and trade have steadily expand- 
ed. Her resources are being gradually 

Laredo has four banks, with total re- 
sources of about eight million dollars. 
The past year the port of Laredo, as 
compared to all other ports of entry into 
Mexico, except El Paso, cleared over 77 
per cent of all the domestic merchandise 
which passed into the Republic from the 
United States. 

Building activities in Laredo are an 
indisputable evidence of the city's rapid 
strides for still greater commercial su- 

premacy. There are eleven churches, 
four Catholic, and seven Protestant; 
eight schools, including the high school, 
and two academies. Laredo has a street 
railway system; electric lighting; natur- 
al gas; water works, and four first class 
hotels. The coal mines at Minera, and 
the Army Post of Fort Mcintosh, within 
the city limits, are both important fac- 
tors in the commercial and industrial 
life of the community. There are three 
brick yards; three ice plants; one foun- 
dry; two daily newspapers (one being in 
Spanish) ; a large number of wholesale 
houses. The Texas Mexican railway 
company and the Rio Grande & Eagle 
Pass Railway Company, each have their 
general shops in this city, the Interna- 
tional & Great Northern has its division- 
al terminal shops located here. Natural 
gas wells have been developed in the 
county, and supply the city and irrega- 
tion pumping plants along the river with 
fuel for domestic and manufacturing 
purposes. Laredo is now the center of 
oil activities, with splendid prospects of 
a great oil field. The shallow oil field 
is rapidly reaching a production of two 
hundred barrels per dav, and many of 
the deeper wells are in the oil sands. 

Laredo is the "hub" of the great 
Bermuda onion industry. Also the cen- 
ter of a great production of spinach, 
cabbage, lettuce and other winter truck 
crops under irrigation. Laredo is the 
life of the great cattle producing indus- 
try, not only of the Texas border, but of 
similar interests in Mexico. 

Laredo has always had cordial rela- 
tions with Mexico and is the one port 
which has always been open. Laredo 
ranks second only to New York as a 
Mexican Consulate. The immense vol- 
ume of business, both freight and pas- 
senger, which enters Mexico at Laredo 
makes it a worthy rival of the Consulate 
at New York City. 

Laredo has the most complete array 
of customs brokers, in all lines of com- 
mercial activities, to be found in the 
Southwest. Their ability and financial 
support are evidenced by the volume of 
business streaming into Mexico through 

Laredo as a city is growing rapidly 
and is one of the most inviting locations 
for factories and warehouses. 


In the heart of the South Plains is 



found Lubbock County, a one hundred 
percent diversified farm county whose 
area is 571,349 acres. It is 96 '< profit- 
ably tillable, and is peopled by 14, 384 
home owning white Americans. There 
are twenty-three school districts, all of 
which have brick buildings housing 3,- 
240 students, 63 '.'< of whom are in rural 

One hundred and five miles of im- 
proved Designated State Highways, 92 
miles of railroads, with 11 sidings and 
four regular stations, give short hauls 
and market facilities to every part of 
the country. 

Lubbock, as the Hub of the Great 
South Plains of Texas, in growth, pros- 
perity and progress, represents the de- 
velopment of a veritable kingdom with- 
in a kingdom. Surrounded by 10,000,- 
000 acres of the most fertile land in 
America, underlain at a depth of sixty 
to 125 feet with an inexhaustible sheet 
of the purest water, and peopled by 63,- 
500 white full-blooded, home-owning 
Americans, it is a distributing and mark- 
eting center whose future is unlimited. 

With a population twenty years ago 
of less than 500 for the county, the city 
alone now has 5,000 people, and the 
county 12,500. The number of farms in 
the county increased 384 percent within 
the last census period. 

Lubbock, the marketing and distribut- 
ing city, is served by five railroads, six 
Designated State Highway outlets, and 
a network of well kept county and inter- 
city highways. Nine wholesale houses 
and a number of markets, a cotton com- 
press, elevator and other distributing 
and marketing facilities gather the pro- 
ducts from over an area of fifteen coun- 
ties and distribute goods to the entire 
South Plains, Panhandle and New Mex- 
ico territory. 

Lubbock is the Modern City of the 
West, with municipal light, water and 
sewer plants, under the Commission 
Manager form of government, and re- 
ceives the full support of her citizenship 
in all things progressive. 


Memphis, altitude 2250 feet, the 
County Seat of Hall County, carries the 
suggestive name of "the Heart of the 
Upper Red River Valley," since it is the 
center and distributing point of this 
famous belt of land that stretches from 
the 100th meridian, on the Prarie Dog 
Town Fork of Red River, west and 

slightly south for sixty miles, and is the 
nucleus for the large trade coming from 
this belt of valley territory, as good and 
as rich as there is in any State in the 
Union. The city of Memphis has a pop- 
ulation of 3,500, two brick grammer 
school buildings, an $80,000.00 high 
school building, modern sewer, light and 
water systems, steam laundry, five cot- 
ton gins, oil mill and two grain eleva- 
tors. Five church buildings (value 
$175,000.00), fifteen miles of sidewalk, 
Carnegie Library, park and ninety busi- 
ness firms, with three banks showing 
capital and surplus of $400,500.00, and 
three wholesale houses. 

The towns of Newlin and Easterline 
nestle on the opposite banks of Red River 
as stations on the Denver Railway. Hul- 
ver is a small town and very progressive 
school community. Lakeview is the 
largest inland town some eleven miles 
southwest of Memphis. Plaska, Leslie, 
and Brice also have three stores and 
high schools. Turkey nestles in one of 
the finest valleys in the Panhandle and 
is a progressive town some forty miles 
from the County Seat. 

The County has 576,640 acres, with 
some 200,000 in cultivation. A general 
estimate shows 2,000 acres in wheat, 1,- 
000 in oats, 5,000 in Indian corn, 42,000 
in maize, 30,000 in kaffir, 80,000 in cot- 
ton, 40,000 in forage crops. The 1920 
census gives 11,137 population with ten 
towns three of them on the railroad. 
Ten years ago the census showed 8,279 
population, which makes a gain in the 
1920 census of 34.5 per cent. 

The tax rolls in round numbers show 
26,000 cattle, 7,000 horses and mules, 
6,000 hogs, 3,000 sheep, and with total 
taxable values $9,000,000.00, the tax 
rate being $1.37 for state and county. 

The County has nineteen school uis- 
tricts, five independent districts and 
twenty-nine school buildings, with some 
eighty teachers to take care of the 3,286 
scholastics. The Memphis High School 
has twenty-two teachers and twenty-one 
and one-half units of affiliation with the 
University of Texas. 

Two State Highways traverse the 
county. The Colorado to Gulf running- 
north and south and the Ozark Trail 
running east and west. The first was 
the pioneer highway of the Panhandle 
and connects the attractions of the cool 
Colorado mountains with the heated 



zones of South Texas, the shortest and 
most direct highway for this travel. The 
Ozark Trail opens the way for Okla- 
homa, Kansas, Missouri, and Arkansas 
and the far East to have a direct auto 
route via New Mexico to El Paso. 

This section is entirely free from 
malaria, with the earliest average frost 
date October 20th, and the latest aver- 
age frost date April 10th. The average 
yearly rain fall is 23 inches. The pub- 
lic activities fostered by the county are : 
A Public Red Cross Nurse, a County 
Chamber of Commerce, a County De- 
monstration Agent, A County Fair, a 
County Superintendent of Public In- 
struction. A Countv Health Officer, and 
a working post of the American Legion. 
Memphis has adopted the slogan of 
'The Town That Keeps the Fellow in 


In the heart of the beautiful Brazos 
valley, fifty-five miles west of Fort 
Worth, Texas, lies Mineral Wells, fam- 
ed throughout the world for its wonder- 
ful mineral waters. For thirty-five 
years this little Texas city has steadily 
grown. From an insignificant hamlet, 
Mineral Wells has advanced, until today 
it stands as the largest mineral water 
shipipng point in the United States. 
Thousands of people owe health and 
happiness to this wonderful health re- 

Mineral Wells is a modern city of 
10,000 people, and is growing. It is con- 
ceded to be one of the best paved and 
best lighted cities in the State. A new 
municipal water plant is being con- 
structed at a cost of $500,000 which 
will be capable of furnishing enough 
water to supplv a population of 65,000 
inhabitants. The reservoir covers 973 
acres and has an average depth of 
twenty-nine feet and is encircled by the 
Bankhead National Highway. 

Mineral Wells is in the center of the 
oil-producing district of Texas and more 
than 300 families, who have been made 
wealthy by the "golden fluid" have 
moved here during the past six months. 
Natural gas from fields entirely sur- 
rounding Mineral Wells, is now being 
used and furnished cities nearby. 

Nature exerted herself in giving a 
beautiful scenic setting for this modern 
Health Resort, a setting fully in keeping 
with the value of the medicinal waters 

found beneath the surface. This beauti- 
ful environment pleases the visitor and 
acts as an aid to recovery. Enthusiastic 
visitors have said that this lovely scen- 
ery compares favorably with that of the 
Green Mountain country, and with the 
show places of California. 

The altitude of Mineral Wells is 1,000 
feet, and the climate both winter and 
summer is in the main a delightful one. 
The air is dry, full of ozone, bracing 
and stimulating. There is a lack of that 
sense of fatigue which comes from a 
warm, humid atmosphere. 

Occasionally, when the Northern win- 
ters are excessively severe, a light 
snow-fall visits us, but disappears in a 
short time. As a rule, the winters are 
full of bright sunshine and of the right 
temperature for the full enjoyment of 
out-door sports. In the summer it grows 
warm in the middle of the day, but the 
nights are delightful. Cooling breezes 
sweep down the valleys, bringing with 
them a temperature whereby one can 
enjoy a good night's sleep. 

Medical men are more and more ad- 
vising the use of mineral waters in the 
treatment of diseases which arise from 
faulty elimination, and a great number 
of them are due to this cause. The 
thorough cleansing of the stomach, bow- 
els, kidneys and bladder by the use of 
these waters gives Nature a chance to 
"come back," and it is wonderful what 
it can accomplish in this regard. By the 
process of elimination of toxines or pois- 
ons, Rheumatism, Gout, Uric Acid, Dia- 
thesis, Dropsy (not of organic origin), 
Insomnia, Constipation and the evil re- 
sults of same, Diabetes, Bright's Disease 
(the early stage), Alcoholism, Nervous- 
ness, Malaria, Faulty Metabolism, High 
Blood Pressure, Auto-Intoxication, are 
materially relieved and often removed. 

Mineral Wells is doubly blessed as a 
city in which to make one's home, or in 
which to spend a vacation. In addition 
to its wonderful waters, it is located in 
a gas field of a proven area larger than 
any in the country. 

Two gas companies have franchises 
for serving the domestic and industrial 
consumer and quantities can be figured 
on for factory purposes at an attractive 

Oil is produced in paying quantities 
in several sections of the County, and 
deep exploration will probably prove 



this to be an oi) field of wonderful possi- 


Quanah is a progressive town of 4,000 
people, is the County Seat of Hardeman 
County, is located on the Fort Worth & 
Denver, 191 miles north west of Fort 
Worth and is the terminus of the Frisco 
Railroad, 186 miles southwest of Okla- 
homa City. Another Railroad, the Q. A. 
& P. runs from Quanah to Roaring 
Springs, a distance of 86 miles. The 
shops and general offices of this rail- 
road are located at Quanah. 

Quanah is a wholesale distributing 
point, having three wholesale groceries, 
one wholesale produce house, one 
wholesale dry goods house, one whole- 
sale drug store and a branch of Swift & 
Company, wholesale meats. These 
wholesale houses employ thirty travel- 
ing men. 

Two of the largest cement mills in the 
world are located 4!/2 miles west of 
Quanah and employ several hundred 
men. The size of these mills may be re- 
alized when we say that Quanah furn- 
ished 9,000 cars of cement for the St. 
Louis Exposition. 

One of the largest oil mills in the 
State is located at Quanah. 

Quanah has ten modern church build- 
ings, four school buildings, sixteen miles 
of cement sidewalks, ample hotel facil- 
ities and electric lights. 

The business district is paved with 
brick with a concrete base. 

The country is healthful and has an 
altitude of 1560 feet above sea level. 

Quanah has a bountiful supply of 
good pure water and a first class sewer- 
age system. 



Sanderson, the county seat of Terrell 
County, is situated practically midway 
between San Antonio and El Paso, on 
the main line of the Southern Pacific 
Railway, and is an important station, 
being the only full division point (both 
passenger and freight) between San An- 
tonio and El Paso. 

The population of the town is about 
1,500; has an altitude of 2,771 feet, and 
is always delightfully cool and pleasant. 
It is exceedingly healthful, due in a 
great measure to the fact that malaria 

and kindred diseases are unknown in 
this section. 

The town suports nearly every line of 
business, and this brief statement would 
not be complete without some reference 
to these institutions and to the general 
resources of this section. Sanderson has 
seven general merchandise stores, — one 
of which has a capital and surplus of 
$150,000; a strong State Bank; a drug 
store;, an up-to-date cold drink es- 
tablishment; a well managed movie 
theater; a strong Wool Commission 
Company; an excellent brick hotel — 
modern throughout and costing $75,- 
000.00; a splendid water and light sys- 
tem, to which will be added this year a 
three-ton ice plant; a good telephone 
exchange ; and one of the best High 
Schools in West Texas, housed in a 
three-story brick building — worth today 
all of $75,000. The town also supports 
four churches and many lodges, and 
both town and county have a citizenship 
second to none. 

Sanderson is situated in the heart of 
the great stock raising section of West 
Texas, and is best adapted to the raising 
of cattle, sheep, Angora goats and hors- 
es. The mild winters make this section 
the stockman's paradise, for there is sel- 
dom any loss to stock from cold and ex- 
posure. The wool commission company 
have a large rock warehouse here, in 
which is stored the immense stocks of 
wool and mohair raised throughout this 

Stockraising being essentially the 
great industry of this portion of the 
State, little farming has been attempted, 
although there are some gardening, fruit 
raising and small areas planted to for- 
age crops. Along the Pecos river some 
acreage is tilled under irrigation, and 
production has been very profuse and 
satisfactory and much of the products 
raised there finds a ready market in 
Sanderson. Sheep are sheared once a 
year (in the spring) — hence the product 
is classed as twelve months clip. Goats 
are sheared twice a year, both spring 
and fall. 

Sanderson has enjoyed a normal but 
a steady growth and is today a town 
which enjoys many facilities unusual to 
a small town. It is a wide-a-wake and 
up-to-date town and extends a welcome 
to the home seeker. Our strong and en- 
terprising Chamber of Commerce will 
always be glad to give data and infor- 



mation to all enquirers. Plenty of good 
ranch land can be bought at reasonable 
prices and thus we offer inducements to 
ranch people, seeking a favorable loca- 
tion, to come west and assist in the de- 
velopment of a good country having a 
great future. 


San Angelo is a city of about 15,000 
population, located in the heart of one 
of the largest ranch and live stock rais- 
ing section of the country. It is the 
capitol of Tom Green County, one of the 
largest counties in western Texas, cov- 
ering an area of 1501 square miles. Ap- 
proximately 75,000 acres of land in the 
county is under cultivation, and about 
640,400 acres are susceptible to cultiva- 

The Santa Fe Railway and the Kansas 
City, Mexico & Orient Railway operate 
into San Angelo from the east and 
north, and have extended their lines to 
the west and northwest territories. The 
Orient Railroad Co., who now have a 
grade almost completed to Del Rio, 
Texas, expect to have their line built by 
1922; and this when completed will pro- 
vide a direct connection from Mexico 
City to Kansas City. 

San Angelo is the chief banking and 
wholesale distributing center for a ter- 
ritory radiating fifty to two hundred 
miles, now having twenty-four whole- 
sale, jobbing and small manufacturing 
concerns established in the city. Also 
have four large banks and a Loan & 
Trust Co. 

The city of San Angelo boasts of its 
public school facilities as being second 
to none in the state, having four large 
modern ward buildings, one Junior High 
and one Senior High, also a first class 
business college. There are also four- 
teen churches in the city, representing 
the various denominations. Some of 
these churches cost from $35,000 to 
$55,000 each and have pipe organs in- 

Tom Green County claims to be the 
best watered county in the state, having 
more miles of running water within her 
boundaries. The three Concho Rivers 
traverse the county from the west and 
south and fork inside the city limits of 
San Angelo. These rivers are fed bv 
living springs of pure water, which, out- 
side of furnishing water for irrigation 
on the thousands of acres of land in the 

county, furnish an abundant supply of 
water in the city for all purposes. The 
city has never been limited as to the 
amount of water it should consume. 

Inside the city fifty-four acres of land 
have been converted into public parks, 
which are being rapidly developed year 
by year and are becoming a source of 
great pleasure and comfort to the cit- 
izens and tourists in general. 

Because of the ideal climate, its two 
thousand foot altitude, and other attrac- 
tions, San Angelo is becoming recog- 
nized as one of the chief touring centers 
in the state. Being located on the Cen- 
tra Texas Highway, the Del Rio-Canad- 
ian Highway and Pudget Sound to Gulf 
Highway, thousands of tourists pass 
through the city annually and when 
they stop for a few days to camp along 
the Concho Rivers great fishing and 
hunting is enjoyed. One of the best 
Country Clubs in Texas is in course of 
construction, near the city, where a 
splendid golf course is being established 
and a large commodious club house is 

San Angelo is noted as a great shin- 
ning center for all kinds of live stock. 
There is marketed annually from this 
territory about 8,000,000 pounds of 
wool; 650,000 pounds of mohair; 145,- 
000 head of cattle, several thousand 
carloads of other live stock and poultry, 
and last season over fifty-seven carloads 
of pecans were shipped to eastern and 
northern markets. All kinds of semi- 
arid grain and forage crops are grown 
in abundance on the fertile dry land 
farms, and alfalfa and truck stuff are 
grown in large quantities on the irrigat- 
ed lands along the three Concho Rivers. 



In twenty-two years Stamford has 
grown from a "prarie dog" town to a 
city of forty-five hundred population, 
with a citizenry as cosmopolitan as can 
be found anywhere in the country. 

Taxable values have grown from a 
nominal sum to three and one-quarter 
million dollars. 

The scholastic population has grown 
from one dozen to fourteen hundred. 

The postoffice receipts have grown 
from nothing to more than twenty-five 
thousand dollars per annum. 

The railroad facilities have grown 
from one railroad to six outlets. 

The banking deposits have grown 



from nothing to millions. 

The streets have been transformed 
from cow trails to more miles of paved 
streets than any city of its size in the 

The churches have grown from tents 
to large organizations. 

In fact, everything, in civic, educa- 
tional, religious, commercial and agri- 
cultural lines, has grown in proportion 
to the figures enumerated. 

Stamford is a living demonstration of 
a well balanced town. 

In Stamford, civic, moral and educa- 
tional agencies have gone hand in hand. 
It has never been a boomed town. It 
has prospered and maintained a steady 

Its commercial spirit is manifested in 
the fact that there are six large whole- 
sale houses located in the city, a mill 
and elevator company, a creamery, a 
brick and tile factory, an ice factory, 
mattress factories, and many small in- 
dustries too numerous to mention. 

Stamford has the most beautiful and 
attractive public plaza in the South. The 
Municipal Building Park, Stamford Inn 
Park, College Lake Park and smaller 
attractive beauty spots all are a surprise 
and wonder to visitors who come to 
Stamford from every section of the 

Water. A large dam now under con- 
struction, across the Clear Fork of the 
Brazos River, will impound two billion 
gallons of water, which will not only 
furnish Stamford with an inexhaustible 
supply of water, but there will be 
enough in storage to furnish factories 
that may be built in years to come, and 
also furnish irrigating water for thous- 
ands of acres of land. No city in the 
country will be better supplied in the 
matter of water, and no country will 
have better advantages in the plan of 

Jones County, in which Stamford is 
located, is the largest agricultural coun- 
ty in the West. Cotton predominates, 
but wheat and sorghum are raised also. 
The land is very productive. 

All of the public service corporations 
are represented in the city, including 
electric lights, sewerage, water works, 
etc. All lines of the retail business are 
fully represented, and the style shows 
and other similar enterprises in Stam- 
ford are commented upon all over the 
state. The banking facilities are recog- 

nized throughout West Texas, and the 
Stamford bankers are looked upon fav- 
orably by the financial institutions of 
the State. 

Stamford is the headquarters of the 
West Texas Chamber of Commerce, the 
largest organization of its kind in the 
United States. It has one of the best 
known local Chambers of Commerce in 
the state. It has a live Rotary Club and 
a full complement of fraternal organiza- 
tions of all kinds. 

Real estate values in this section are 
consistent with their productive value 
and good lands can always be had. The 
same is true of the city property. There 
are no vacant houses in the city, but 
ample room for others to be built. 

The city of Stamford is governed un- 
der the commission form of government, 
and broad progressive men compose the 
commission. The tax rate is not out of 
harmony with the vast amount of im- 
provement, and this will be lowered 
substantially as soon as the water works 
project becomes a going concern. 

The citizens make a modest claim 
that Stamford and surrounding country 
are delightful places in which to live. 
No super-man ideas are claimed, but 
the fact remains that there is no more 
progressive town or section to be found 
than in Stamford. No greater possibil- 
ities exist and the hand of fellowship is 
extended to all who desire to locate or 
invest in the city and country that have 
the environments that have been faith- 
fully given in the above description. 

Sweetwater is located on the main line 
of the Texas & Pacific railroad, just 
half way between Texarkana and El 
Paso, also on the main line of the Santa 
Fe from Galveston to San Francisco and 
on the Kansas City, Mexico and Orient 
between Kansas City and Alpine, Texas. 
Having six trunk line outlets, Sweet- 
water is the distributing center for all 
the territory known as Central West 

Within a radius of 100 miles of Sweet- 
water there are 602,300 people. 

This area embraces nearly all of fifty- 
one counties, 48 of which have railroad 
connection with Sweetwater. 

During the year 1920 there were reg- 
istered in this territory 37,500 trucks 
and automobiles. There were 216 banks 
in this territory, with a total deposit of 
$113,400 .00. 



Water Supply 

Sweetwater's water supply is suffic- 
ient to supply a city of 40,000 people. 
Its source of supply is Lake Trammel, 
7 1-2 miles from the city, containing an 
unlimited amount of pure water which 
reaches the city by force of gravity, 
eliminating pumping of any sort. 


At this time there are more business 
and residence houses under construction 
than at any time in the history of the 
city, in fact there are more improve- 
ments underway here than in any other 
city in the State. 


There was recently organized in 
Sweetwater a Manufacturers' Associa- 
tion consisting of 22 manufacturing con- 

Climatic, sanitary and moral condi- 
tions, with the advantages of good 
schools and churches and the people 
being 95 per cent red blooded Americans 
who willingly and readily, (like all of 
this section of the state) respond to all 
calls of our government during the late 
war, under adverse conditions, make 
Sweetwater and all of West Texas a de- 
sirable place in which to live. 


The beautiful little town of Tulia has 
a population of 1500 people. It is the 
county seat of Swisher County, located 
in the center of the great wheat raising 
belt of the Panhandle. Tulia is on the 
Sante Fe railway which has a fine brick 
depot at this point, costing in the neigh- 
borhood of $35,000.00. Tulia is also 
the junction point of the Pudget Sound 
to Gulf Highway and the main Ozark 
Trail extending from St. Louis to Cali- 
fornia. The town has an elegant $100, 
000.00 court house, a $40,000.00 brick 
school building, a municipal water and 
light plant, two banks, and five large 
grain elevators. The town has an alti- 
tude of 3600 feet above sea-level, and 
the summers are cool and delightful, it 
being necessary to sleep under covers of 
some kind during the entire summer. 
The entire country is underlaid with an 
inexhaustable supply of absolutely pure 
cool water, at a depth of only 40 to 80 
feet. The irrigation possibilities of this 
county are practically unlimited. More 
than 25 large irrigation wells are now 
in operation, in various parts of the 
county, each pumping an average of 

about 1500 gallons of water per minute. 
These wells often more than pay for 
their instalation the first year. 

Swisher county has a rich, fertile 
soil, free from excessive sand, and there 
are no rocks, stumps, or other obstruc- 
tions rendering it unnecessary to clear 
the land before plowing. The land is 
level and ready for the plow, more than 
95 per cent of the county being suitable 
for crops. This level nature of the land 
with the absence of obstructions, makes 
the country especially adapted to farm- 
ing with tractors and other modern farm 
implements, a large number of which 
are now in use in Swisher County. The 
use of these tractors and modern imple- 
ments enables one man and his family 
to easily farm from 100 to 1000 acres 
in wheat and other crops. More than 
150,000 acres are planted in wheat each 
year in the county, and produce an aver- 
age of from 18 to 20 bushels per acre, 
without irrigation. In the years 1919 
1920 Swisher County raised one-sixtenth 
of all the wheat produced in the state, 
and during the same years Tulia ship- 
ped more cattle and wheat than any 
other town in Texas. In addition to this 
immense wheat crop, a large acreage is 
planted in kaffir, milo maize, sorghum, 
sudan grass, Indian corn, oats, millet, 
alfalfa, and other crops. Wheat shipped 
from Tulia has a wide reputation for its 
quality. In 1909 this county won first 
prize on wheat, over the world, at the 
Omaha Exposition. And the county has 
won first prize on its wheat everytimc 
it has been shown at the Dallas Fair. 
Swisher County also has an equal repu- 
tation for its thoroughbred cattle and 

The people of Tulia are as a whole 
prosperous, generous, lawabiding, moral 
and religious. The entire population is 
composed of white American citizens. 



Vernon is the wealthiet town per cap- 
ita of eighteen cities of its class in Texas, 
according to a survey of cities from 
5,000 to 11,000 made by the Vernon 
Chamber of Commerce. 

Vernon with a population of 5,142, 
has a per capita wealth of $2,076. The 
average wealth of the eighteen cities is 
$1,413. Vernon, therefore, is forty-six 
per cent richer than the av e rage of the 

The year 1920 has been the year of 



the greatest progress in the h.story of 
Vernon. More than $2,000,000 worth of 
building was done here in 1920. Forty- 
one business houses were built (or add- 
ed to) at a total cost of $777,000. Two 
hundred fifty-one residences were con- 
structed, at an outlay of $1,254,500. 
These figures were obtained by an 
actual survey. 

Vernon is said to support its Chamber 
of Commerce with more money per cap- 
ita than any other city in the world 
having a population of 5,142. Vernon 
invests $16,160 annually in its Chamber 
of Commerce, or a per capita support of 
$3.10. Although it is a separate corpora- 
tion the Vernon Chamber of Commerce 
considers itself nothing more than a 
group of citizens organized to work in co- 
operation for the interests of themselves. 

Some of the things which the people 
of this community did for th e mselves 
through cooperation last year are : they 
advertised this community in state and 
national papers, sent six people on the 
Texas Farm Boys Special, under the 
auspices of the Texas Chamber of Com- 
merce and A. & M. College, built a hos- 
pital, two cotton warehouses, a whole- 
sale grocery, a large wagon yard, a 
c ream buying station, a camping park 
for tourists, secured aid in getting the 
grain car shortage relieved, sent an ex- 
hibit of agricultural products to the 
Dallas State Fair and other state fairs, 
put on a war fare against professional 
beggars and solicitors which fight 
has attracted national attention and has 
been written up in the NATIONS 
BUSINESS, started a movement which 
resulted in the relief of the coal shortage 
through out the middle west, relieved 
the local ice shortage, purchased a chem- 
ical fire truck and a pumper, put on the 
first Chamber of Commerce Cooking 
School on record and organized a Rotary

of Fort Worth 
Late Brig. Gen. U. S. Army. 

THE World's War, which 1 cost the 
United States considerably more than 
a million dollars an hour, was not won 
by armed forces alone, and every man, 
woman and child who patriotically ful- 
filled their duty in their lines of endea- 
vor, may justly share in the glory, of 
which there is plenty for all. 

The outstanding feature of War's pre- 
paration was the very general accept- 
ance of the selective service law, under 
which from June 5th. 1917, to Septem- 
ber 12th. 1918. there were 990,522 reg- 
istrations in Texas. 

The men from Texas were of the high- 
est order of physical condition in the 
country, over 77 per cent of those called 
being accepted into military service. 
Only those physically fit to fight were 
inducted into the armed forces, and the 
work of making munitions, running rail- 
roads and building- ships was done by 
men not enrolled in such armed forces. 

T exas furnished to the national armed 
forces of the United States, from April 
6th, 1917, to November 11th, 1918, an 
aggregate of 198,228 men, apportioned 
175,344 to the army, 22,522 to the 
Navy and Marine Corps, and 362 to the 
Coast Guard and U. S. Guard. 

Texas furnished the greater part of 
the 36th and 90th Divisions, one unit in 
the 42nd Division, and her sons in vary- 
ing numbers were present in all divi- 
sions and in all of the branches of the 
armed forces. 

American combat forces were organ- 
ized into divisions having an approxi- 
mate strength of 28,000. These divisions 
were the largest on the western front, 
the British division approximating 15,- 
000 and the French and German about 
12,000 each. 

There were sent overseas 42 American 
Divisions and of these divisions 29 took 
part in the active combat service. The 
36th, 42nd, and 90th were active com- 

bat divisions and at the time of the 
greatest activity, early in October, 1918, 
all 29 divisions were in action, at which 
time they held over a hundred miles of 
front or 23 per cent of the entire allied 
battle line. 

A. summary of the accomplishments 
of the divisions, in which large numbers 
of Texans bore a distinguished part, is 
as follows: 

36th Division: No days spent in 
quiet sector; 23 days in active sector; 
advanced 21 kilometers against the en- 
emy; captured 549 prisoners; casual- 
ties suffered. 600 killed, 2528 wound- 

42nd Division : 125 days in quiet sec- 

:i9 days in active sector; advanced 55 
kilometers; captured 1317 prisoners; 
casualties suffered 2644 killed, 13,919 

90th Division: 42 days in quiet sector; 
26 days in active sector; advanced 
28 1-2 kilometers; captured 1876 pris- 
oners; casualties suffered 1392 killed, 
7277 wounded. 
Of the 16 camps and 16 cantonements 

in the U. S., the following were located 

in Texas: 

Camp Bowie (Fort Worth), Camp Lo-

Of Dallas 

Department Adjutant, the American Legion of Texas 

A MERE glimpse into the inside history of 
the Empire State of the Union will show a 
citizenship nurtured in the strongest bonds of 
patriotism and loyalty. Successively acknowl- 
edging the supremacy of six flags and wresting 
her independence from each of the first five, 
then to go by her own free will under the 
Stars and Stripes, is a heritage approached by 
no other state and forms a noble history of 
which Texas is justly proud. 

It was this citizenship, nurtured in the cradle 
of Texas Liberty. Loyalty and Patriotism, that 
made an immediate response to the greatest 
call of all — the world conflict of 1917-1918. 
Standing fifth in point of population, she also 
stood fifth in the total number of men sent 
into the service; thus living up to her exact 
record. In actual figures we furnished 175,- 
344 men for the Army, 2 2,522 for the Navy and 
Marine Corps, and 362 in the United States 
Coast Guards, a total of 198,228, or 4.16 per- 
cent of the whole.* 

*The figures on the air service are not yet 
available, but our state sent many men into 
this enticing but dangerous branch, and Texas 
was awarded five aviation training camps — 
containing about three fourths of all the air 
service of the Nation. 

Texas' response to the call for volunteers 
was immediate and spontaneous, and after the 
Selective Service Act went into effect 7 5 out 
of every 100 men examined were accepted for 
service. A record unsurpassed and equalled 
only by eleven other states. Not counting the 
thousands of Texas men in other organizations 
and on special service, Texas wholly furnished 
two main divisions, trained, equipped and 
sent overseas. 

The 36th Division, composed of Texas Na- 
tional Guardsmen, was drafted into Federal 
service August 5th, 1917, after having been 
recruited to war strength by its own efforts. 
This division was trained at Camp Bowie, Tex., 
under the command of Major General E. St. 
John Greblfe. General Oreble, (however, was 
relieved of the command on the eve of the 
departure for France, being succeeded by Major 
General Smith. The bulk of this division 
reached France in July 1918, and reached the 
front about October 1st, receiving its first shell 
fire at St. Mihiel, October 6-7. It remained a 
combat division to the end of the war. They 

captured 54 9 prisoners. The total casualties of 
this division amounted to 2,528. The artillery 
of Ibis division was returned to the United 
States in March, 1919, the remainder of the 
division following in May. 

The 90th Division was organized at Camp 
Travis during the months of September and 
October, 1917, from National Army troops un- 
der the command of Major General Henry T. 
Allen. This division reached France in June, 
1918, and went into action during September 
of the same year, remaining a combat division 
for the remainder of the war. This division 
captured 1,87 5 prisoners. Total casualties 
amounted to 7,277. The 90th Division returned 
to the United States in June, 1919. 

Outside of Uiese two divisions, thousands of 
Texans were in other organizations and did 
(heir duty as only real men can know or under 
stand. Speaking of Texas troops, the com- 
manding general of the American Expeditionary 
Forces referred to them as men '"who did what 
war to be expected when we remember the his 
tory of their state, nurtured, as they are. in 
the cradle of loyalty and patriotism. I consider 
that the work of the 90th Division was not 
surpassed and the 36th was a very good second 
to it. ' Approximately 3,000 loyal Texans paid 
the supreme sacrifice in France in order that 
freedom and justice might not die. 

And after two years the war was over and 
the boys came home. They found that the re- 
construction era had problems far more reach- 
ing than the problems of warfare. There are 
battles of peace as of war. Instinctively the 
men who were organized ii^to the greatest 
fighting organization of our National history 
turned into an organization of their own, 
wherein they might work together toward the 
forwarding of the same principles of decent 
goverment for which they went to war in 1917. 

For these reasons, therefore, the American 
Legion had its birth. Its work in the promot- 
ing of 100 per cent Americanism and kindred 
subjects speaks for itself. 

The future of the American Legion will be 
what its membership shall make it, and re- 
membering of what material this membership 
is composed, we may say that the future is 
very bright. On the experience of the past 
shall we build our plans for a larger and 
better America always.

The Part of the Texas Doctors in the War 


(Deceased ) 

Formerly of San Antonio, Texas 

Ex-President State Medical Association of Texas 

TO tell what the Texas Doctors have 
done in this war is an impossible 
task. It would be to ask of the wind that 
blew through the camps and cantone- 
ments of our army while all slept but the 
surgeon and the sufferer; it would be 
to make a witness of the mother and fath- 
er of the boy who has been brought back 
to them from the gates of death ; to make 
a witness of the man who bears under his 
blouse the wound of death; and mo^e, 
it would be to hear the stories told by 
the souls of soldiers who sleep under the 
poppies of France — stories we shall nev- 
er hear. I can not do this, but there are 
some facts and some truths ready at hand 
chat may be told. 

There was commissioned from Texas 
the following medical personnel : 

Army .... 825 

Navy ..-• 50 

National Guard 52 

Total 927 

Added to this should be 142 more rec- 
ommended for commission at the time 
of the signing of the armistice. There 
are about 5000 active practitioners in 
the State. Texas actually contributed to 
the war one doctor for ever 5.2 men in 
active medical practice. This is a greater 
contribution than that of any other pro- 
fession than that of nursing. Late 
in March of 1918, the officers of the 
State Medical Association of Texas made 
a preliminary classification of the doc- 
tors of the State, as to their availability 
for military service. Later, the Texas 
Committee of the Committee of Ameri- 
can Physicians for Medical Prepared- 
ness, under the leadership of Dr. W. B. 
Ri;ss, began a survey of the profession 
and secured the detail of Lt. Col. Hol- 
man Taylor for this work. After this the 
Council of National Defgnse, Medical 
Section, took over the work of the afore- 
said committee. At the urgent solicita- 
tion of the Council of National Defense, 
Medical Section, a more complete survey 
and classification of the doctors of Texas 
was begun in May by the acting Secre- 
tary, Dr. I. C. Chase, in connection with 

the State Committee of the Council of 
National Defense, Medical Section. This 
was an enormous task thrown upon the 
central office without any extra com- 
pensation to the employees of the As- 
sociation. Biographical data of great 
value concerning almost every doctor in 
the State was accumulated and an up-to- 
date directory was compiled. As this 
work of final classification was about to 
begin and the results be forwarded to 
Washington, on August 15th, Major 
Franklin Martin wired that the central 
committee of the Council of National 
Defense, Medical Section, had been re- 
organized and would, from Washington, 
begin a new classification, and urged 
'chat complete questionaires from the 
State, secured on new blanks, be for- 
warded to Washington within a week. 
Blanks for this purpose were mailed 
from Washington and a new organiza- 
tion of county advisers were appointed 
by Washington authorities. This result- 
ed in the organization of the "Volunteer 
Medical Service Corps," with a new ex- 
ecutive committee of the Texas Govern- 
ing Board of the Volunteer Medical Ser- 
vice Corps." This new Committee began 
new classifications, but had hardly 
started its work when the armistice 
was signed. Its work was not complete 
at the time the Volunteer Medical Ser- 
vice Corps was suspended in April. 

This was the fourth classification un- 
dertaken in Texas during the war. Al- 
though these classifications, for want of 
a central unified plan of action, seemed 
abortive, they doubtless awakened a 
great deal of interest and lead indirect- 
ly to an increase in applications for com- 
missions. The amount of work voluntari- 
ly contributed by the district supervisors- 
councilors, executive committee and 
county secretaries, in these surveys, can 
hardly, and probably never will, be ap- 
preciated by the mass of the profession 

In connection with the draft mach- 
inery the records show that almost all 
available doctors took some part of the 
burden upon their shoulders, in addition 
to other sacrifices that they were mak- 
ing and labor that they were doing. The 



records of the Texas Boards in sending 
clean and able men to the front ties 
Connecticut for second place in the low 
number of rejections, Texas having 5.12 
per cent; Connecticut, 5.11 per cent, 
while Maryland hardly exceeded Texas 
and Connecticut, her percentaue being 

There were during this war, 600 med- 
ical men on district and local boards, 
and 150 on medical advisory boards, to- 
taling 750. This, together with those 
commissioned in the Army, Navy and 
National Guard, 927, and 142 who had 
been recommended for commission at 
the time of the signing of the armistice, 
makes a total of 1,819, exclusive of the 
Volunteer Medical Service Corps. This 
large number of physicians serving on 
boards, and those activly engaged in 
war during hostilities, it will be remem- 
bered, was out of about 5,000 active 
practitioners of the state. 

Everyone who made the sacrifice he 
was called upon to make deserves dis- 
tinction. Rank played but a paltry part 
in this great melting pot. Some one, 
some time, will tell the undying story 
of the bravery and chivalry of our sons 
on the Western front. 

Without comparison or criticism and 
with a heart full of gratitude and ap- 
preciation, I desire to say that, what- 
ever else may be said, or whatever oth- 
er viewpoint may be taken concerning 
the part the Texas doctors played dur- 
ing this war, it must be conceded that 
they paid in full, and in every particu- 
lar, their debt to their country, to hu- 
manity and to liberty. Paid even to their 
pound of flesh, paid with their talents, 
their blood, their bones and their bodies; 
and greater, or more than this, none 
could have done — and yet they paid it 
frankly, willingly and cheerfully. 

And while you did only the thing ex- 
pected of you, you followed in the foot- 
steps of your forebears, and the exam- 
ples of your forefathers, who when the 
tyranny of Mexico required our blood 
and treasure to procure and perpetuate 
freedom; when the question of secession 
was to be settled by the arbitrament of 
arms on an hundred battle fields, laid 
their all on the altar of their country. 
Your action was non the less heroic. 

Not the least soul satisfying thought 
that warms the heart of every doctor 

in the contemplation of this unparal- 
leled tragedy and unparalleled sacrifice 
is the realization that almost if not every 
physician in Texas did his or her part 
to the fullest. And it is pleasing and 
gratifying that there is an imperishable 
record showing that many who did not 
and could not for many reasons put on 
the uniform, did their full duty for hu- 
manity and freedom. Those who gave 
their lives, health, talents and time, to 
their country, serving in the very fore- 
front of the battle lines; those who 
spent gruelling hours over wrecked and 
torn humanity on operating tables in 
advanced hospitals; those serving in 
base and post hospitals, and cantone- 
ments in this country, camp infirmaries 
and all, in whatsoever position they 
served, too much cannot be said in 
praise, and no State can be more proud 
of her sons. 

I do not undertake to determine by 
what occult means our government se- 
lected physicians for this duty or that, 
or why or how the rank or status was 
fixed ; who was sent overseas and who 
was left, or who was placed at the very 
forefront of responsible duty or kept in 
the rear ; but this I do assert, the best 
was neither taken nor left, given higher 
or lower rank. And I, here and now, de- 
sire to pay tribute to the doctor who, 
forsaking all else, clung to his country in 
her hour of peril, regardless of pay, em- 
olument or rank, or where, what or how 
he served. Among them there must be 
no distinction. If our government was 
short of surgeons in France, if our col- 
leagues were overworked, if medical 
men were needed, the responsibility can- 
not be laid at the door of the Texas sur- 
geons, for each of you know the con- 
stant cry from the beginning to the end 
from the Texas doctors was, "Here am I, 
send me." If you were marooned, forgot- 
ten, overlooked and left behind, the re- 
sponsibility was not ours. And thank God 
every Texas surgeon did his duty and his 
full duty, regardless of personal equa- 
tion and the refrain was "Place me 
where I can do the most good." 

It is with the keenest pleasure that 
I now turn to the other side of the pic- 
ture and am able to say with pride and 
greatest pleasure, that while those in 
uniform were doing their full part, the 
civil surgeon was doing his and doing 
more. Too much cannot be said of and 



too much credit can not be given to the 
unfortunate surgeon who had to stay 
at home and still do his duty. The draft 
machinery, Red Cross, the increased 
work incidental to the departure of 
many surgeons, gave opportunity to 
those who stayed at home to pay and 
pay in full the debt that they owed 
their country, and it is unnecessary to 
say again that it was paid to the fullest. 
Especially should a wreath be laid at 
the feet of the older practitioners of 
medicine, God bless them, who had par- 
tially retired from practice when the 
war came, but who again picked up the 
thread of practice and devoted them- 
selves assiduously to the work that had 
previously been done by younger men. 
I know physicians over 65 years of age 
who during the war did not decline a 
single call ; and I feel that more than 
this, no man has done. With examples 
like these, is it to be wondered that our 
younger men filled full the measure of 
their duty? 

And truly the doctor to whom my 
heart goes out the most, is the unfor- 
tunate surgeon whom circumstances and 
conditions prevented from going to the 
front when his soul cried out to join the 
innumerable caravan that was march- 
ing on to victory or to death. Texas 
had many of these and they carried a 
burden and did a duty absolutely sub- 
lime in its nature and stupendous in its 
character; and the services they ren- 
dered to our State Association, to our 

institutions of learning and to many 
semi-public and private enterprises, of 
which the world could know nothing, 
were second to no duty that any son of 
the State has done. 

I cannot refrain from here mention- 
ing the one who stands out particularly 
prominent in this kind of service: the 
man who has carried the burden of our 
Journal and assisted in the affairs of 
our State Association, as no other man 
could have done. I refer to Dr. Ira Carl- 
eton Chase. When the war was apparent- 
ly tumbling our house down around our 
ears, when it looked as though suspen- 
sion and disorganization started us in the 
face, it was he who stepped into tne 
breach and gave us his time and his 
talent to a degree that could not have 
been expected of any one. 

These things and more have been 
done by the doctors of Texas. We have 
dovie our duty, done it willingly and 
cheerfully, not boastfully, or arrogantly; 
yet we do boast of one man, the valliant 
man of our profession whom we loaned 
to the line to command the most feared 
organization on earth — a regiment of 
Texas Infantry. I refer to Lieutenant 
Colonel Holman Taylor, who led a reg- 
iment of our boys through the fiery fur- 
nace. And now his duty done, he lays 
down his title and rank of Commission 
and proudly assumes that of Doctor of 
Medicine and becomes again our be-, 
loved and efficient Secretary.

The Texas Public Health Associa- 
tion, with state offices at 616 Little- 
field Building, Austin, is a society incor- 
porated under the laws of Texas and 
formed by a number of prominent Tex- 
as citizens who are interested in health 
■ — especially the fight against tubercu- 

The principal aims of the association 
are : To disseminate Knowledge con-

Ex-President, Texas Music Teachers' Association 

THE idea recently prevailed in some por- 
tions of the country that Texas is an un- 
tamed region where all the male population 
wears the regulation cowboy outfit (which is 
regulation only in the movies) and where the 
indians still indulge in occasional outbreaks 
and where bears may be seen wandering down 
Slain Street. An inevitable corollary of this 
impression was that Texas was necessarily quite 
undeveloped musically. However, we may reas- 
onably lay claim to being in a favorably ad- 
vanced state musically and in support of our 
claims we enumerate a few of our musical re- 

There are within the state a large number 
of schools and colleges which maintain large 
music departments administered by teachers 
of the broadest experience and musicianship, 
many of whom are of national repute. The Uni- 
versity of Texas has a Department of Music 
whose work is counted toward the academic de- 
gree in the university. The College of Industrial 
Arts, at Denton, a state school, has one of the 
largest fine arts departments in the country. 

The State Department of Education is show- 
ing an active interest in music in the public 
schools of the state. Only recently a commit- 
tee was appointed by the State Superintendent 
of Public Instruction, Miss Annie Webb Blanton, 
to revise all the present public school music 
courses and to provide a number of new ones 
for use in the high schools. The State Commit- 
tee on Affiliation has officially ruled that mu- 
sic is a suitable subject for high school credit 
on the same basis as any other subject. Texas 
has a State Supervisor of Music. 

One of the sure signs of the progressiveness 
of the music teaching profession of a state, 
and indirectly of the entire musical activity of 
the state, is the presence of a State Music 
Teachers' Association. The Texas Music Teach- 
ers' Association, ranking perhaps fifth in the 
country in membership, has accomplished much 
in unifying the interests of the profession and 
in establishing the educational value of music 
study. It was through the efforts of the asso- 
ciation that the State Department of Education 
has been interested in taking up seriously the 
status of music in the schools. The association 
has also obtained from the Association of Tex- 
as Coleges a statement of policy looking toward 
the recognition of high school music credits for 
college entrance. 

The Texas Federation of Music Clubs, affili- 
ated with the National Federation of Music 

Clubs, is an influential organization represent- 
ing some seventy of the most active music 
clubs of the state. Many of the leading teachers 
of the state have given scholarships to the 
federation, which are awarded Jto deserving 
students. The Scholarship Committee has each 
year been able to secure scholarships from well- 
known teachers and schools in the national mu- 
sical centers, which are awarded in open com- 

One of the unmistakable evidences of an 
aroused public interest in music is the success- 
ful operation of a symphony orchestra. Ther3 
are at least four orchestras of symphonic pro- 
portions in the state — the San Antonio Sym- 
phony Orchestra, conducted by Julian Paul 
Blitz; the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Walter 
J. Fried, conductor; the University Symphony 
Orchestra, of Austin, Prof. Frank L. Reed, con- 
ductor; and the Waco Symphony Orchestra, 
Severin Frank, conductor. 

The largest cities of the state have concert 
seasons that would have done credit to cities 
thrice their size a few years ago. In addition 
to individual artists some of the most important 
symphonic and operatic organizations have an- 
nual appearances in Texas. The Chicago Opera 
Association has for some years appeared in 
Texas. It may be mentioned that Texas heard 
Galli-Curci in opera before New York had that 

One of the musical resources of the state is 
the only periodical published in the Southwest 
devoted exclusively to the interests of music. 
This is "The Musicale," published monthly in 
Dallas. This journal is the official organ of the 
Texas Music Teachers' Association, the Texas 
Federation of Music Clubs, the Texas Chapter 
of the American Guild of Organists, and the 
Texas Music Merchants' Association. 

During the fall of 1919 Dallas first celebrated 
"Music Day," which proved to be one of the 
most potent agencies for publicity for music 
that has been devised. On that day all the mu- 
sical interests of the city united for the exploit- 
ation of its musical resources by means of con- 
certs, receptions, and demonstrations, New 
York later had a Music Week, and whether or 
not it was suggested by the Texas event, at 
least the chronological sequence gives us the 
right to assert that such was its inception. 

These conditions indicate progressive devel- 
opments and assure the accomplishment of sub- 
stantial results.

To Mr. G. C. Wood belongs the credit 
of making the Local Board of Wichita 
County one of the most efficient and suc- 
cessful Boards in the State. 

He was appointed chairman of the 
Local Board of Wichita County by Gov- 
ernor Ferguson and immediately laid 
aside his own business. At his own ex- 
pense he did all the preliminary work. 
He never attempted any of his own busi- 
ness for several months, until he had de- 
veloped a very efficient working staff, 
and then, as the Local Board office was 
in his own office, he had personal super- 
vision of same. 

He was appointed Inspector of forty 

surrounding Counties. This work was 
successfully accomplished and his ser- 
vices were recognized at Washington by 
a special letter on the subject. 

The success of the Board, and also the 
Inspection of Records of the forty Coun- 
ties, was due to Mr. Wood's clear con- 
ception of each individual case and his 
unfailing justice in each decision, 
coupled with the fact that no influence, 
from whatever source, received any con- 

He was the first Chairman of any 
Board to apply the rule of what was 
known later as "work or fight." 

He was the first in the State, and prob- 
ably in the whole country, to arrange for 
the drilling of probable Class 1 regis- 
trants and when he reported his action 
to Headquarters he was promptly noti- 
fied by General Crowder to discontinue 

However, some months later, this 
Board was notified by Headquarters to 
arrange for this important preliminary

He and his associate, Mr. W. W. Wiswell, are now engaged in com- 
piling a West and North Texas edition of the Standard Blue Book. 

Col. Peeler is the President and founder of these publications, a work 
of much merit, influence and authority. 

This particular edition — 

First — Will feature and make imperishable the splendid records of 
Texans both in civil and military life who patriotically and loyally did their 
part at home and at the front in the recent great struggle for the liberation 
of humanity. 

Second — Will create a lasting memorial perpetuating in the libraries 
of the Nation, the names of our noble and brave Texas heroes who made 
the supreme sacrifice with their lives that freedom might live. 

Third— Will make known to the world, in a most effective way the 
many attractive advantages of this great section of Texas and our splendid 
type of citizenship. 

The work is meeting with splendid success and by right should be 
encouraged by every patriotic citizen of Texas, and f hereby attest my 
hearty approval of the same. 

I will also, by request, contribute an article for the work on the part 
played by our men in the winning of he war. Yours very truly,

Kindly reserve for the Gunter Hotel one full 
page in the advertising section of your Standard 
Blue Book. Our advertising space with you in 
your book of 1914 on Texas was one quarter page. 
In your book on New Orleans in 1917, we took 
one half page space. In your Book on Texas 1920 
we took one page space. We find the results so 
effective as a powerful advertising medium that 
we feel justified in continuing this advertising

To Come From Press on or Before January 1st, 1922 

215 W. Commerce St., San Antonio, Texas 

If you want a permanent record of Texans who do things; men and women who 
by their unconquerable determination, splendid nerve and grit, turned the wild prairies 
and silent plains, buffalo ranges and the hunting grounds of the Indian, the mountains 
and the valleys, into a veritable paradise of waving fields, modern cities and 
prosperous 1 and happy people — you will find it in WHO 'S WHO IN TEXAS. 

If you want the names of the people who made Texas and are still making- 
it greater, the real live, progressive, loyal poeple of the greatest state in the American 
Union — you will find them in Who's Who in Texas. 

If you want a book of authority, a reference work unequaled and without a 
peer, that will be invaluable as a business guide and showing the loyalty, progressive- 
ness, wealth, refinement, culture and social prestage of the people of the various sections 
and principal towns and cities of Texas — subscribe for a copy of Who 's Who in Texas. 

If you want in detail their names, their addresses 1 , occupations, various firms 
and corporations interested in, official positions present and past, place and date of 
birth, their ancestors, where educated and degrees, their lodges, clubs, church, societies, 
favorite recreations, date of marriage, military record during World War, civilJian 
War Work and other general information— you will find this recorded in Who 's Who 
in Texas. 


The book wall be limited and restricted to those Texans, men and women, re- 
ceiving invitations issued through and by request of our state advissory committee on 
the advice and approval of various respective local committees. This book will not 
contain any personal photographs. 

To meet the expenses of this most valuable and costly work, we will incorporate 
therein a reliable and dependable advertising section simply as a channel of com- 
munication between honest persons, firms and corporations engaged in straightforward 
business pursuits upon a basis of rectitude, valid declarations and substantial facts. 
Standing behind this section is the positive guarantee of the Standard Blue Book Co., 
with the assurance that thorough investigation has been made with unfaltering exactness 
and that every person represented in either the advertising or Who 's Who Section is 
deserving of public confidence. 

This Book will prove invaluable to the merchant, the banker, the manufacturer, 
tourist, resort hotels, investment bankers, colleges and universities, mail order houses 
and all business institutions of every nature, as the only direct, permanent, reliable 
method of reaching the people of Texas. 

We have further incorporated in this work such matter as to make it indispens- 
ible to the home as a constant reference book as well as a financial and social guide 
book and it will there occupy the same relative position as the city directory does in 
the business world.

Was issued as a National Bank July 12, 1882 




Since that date it has steadily grown and 
increased in importance in keeping with the 
rapid development of Laredo and its trade 
territory as the gateway to the Republic of 
Mexico. Mr. Eugene Kelley, of New York. 
who was instrumental in the establishment of 
tile bank was its first president and was 
later succeeded by Daniel Milmo who was in 
turn succeeded by Mr. Miles T. Cogley in 
1911. who up to that time had held the posi- 
tion of cashier from 1886. This bank, the 
first National Bank to be established in this 
section is also one of the most popular and 
strongest banking institutions in the Rio 
Grande Country. This is evidenced by the 
following statement.

G. P. FARIAS. Cashier. 

This bank enjoys extensive and influen- 
tial outside connections and has always held 
particularly confidential relations with the 
leading business men and enterprises of 
Laredo and vicinity. This has been par- 
ticularly so in connection with the new 
business and agricultural growth of Webb 
County, and mew comers whether going into 
farming stock-raising or general business, 
have found this institution a most excellent 
medium through which to get and stay in 
touch with the life and business activities of 
this locality. 

Mr. Miles Cogley, its -president has the 
confidence friendship and co-operation of 
many of the strongest bankers and financial 
institutions of the United States. He has 
always been the credit man of the bank. The 
one who passes upon the making of laws and 
has seldom made a bad one, notwithstanding 
the fact that he almost invariably makes a 
loan to a [man ''on his face'' — according to 
the moral risk, rather than upon his actual 
resources ;and security. In 1914 Mr. Cogley 
was elected president of the Texas-Mexican 
Railway, of which he bad been pay master 
thirty years before. The presidency of the 
Railroad and the bank are among the leading 
enterprises which now commands the attention 
of this most able and interesting man.
